ISA 2024 -2025 Budget Submission

25 January 2024

ISA believes that there is value in articulating a national policy agenda that drives national improvement and reforms to improve the outcomes of all Australian students. Equally important, however, is the recognition that reform in Australian schooling involves all sectors of education.

The process for the development of the next National School Reform Agreement (NSRA) has already had several significant inputs, including a review of the current NSRA undertaken by the Productivity Commission and a further review undertaken by an Expert Panel commissioned by the Minister for Education.

It is imperative that schools in all sectors, and the structures that support them, are resourced appropriately to successfully implement the reforms in the next NSRA if the Government’s investment is to deliver real outcomes.
