What are the core priorities for Australian schools?

Just before the advent of the coronavirus and its impact on schools, we held up a microphone for educational professionals at Australian schools to have their say on what was important. They voiced their challenges, priorities, intentions and directions across school leadership, management, teaching, learning and technology.​

Welcome to this inaugural report on Australian Schools.

Thanks to the 877 Principals, Deputy Principals, Teachers, Business Managers, school administrators, and Technology Managers, across Australia’s independent and government schools, for sharing their valuable insights.

This report reviews the sentiments, views and advice of your peers and provides a useful insight to what will again be important to schools once the current coronavirus disruption concludes.
