The Expert Panel will deliver a final report to all Education Ministers by 31 October 2023. 

Throughout the Review process, the Expert Panel will engage extensively across the schools sector with stakeholders including students, teachers, school leaders and support staff, education unions, national education agencies, non-government sector school stakeholders, parents, carers, youth and student bodies, and governments to examine a range of issues. 

The Expert Panel encourages you to engage in the consultation process to ensure the voices of all people and organisations affected by the National School Reform Agreement are heard and considered. 

Teachers, Parents/Guardians and Students Survey 

The survey, conducted by the Social Research Centre is available online from 23 May to 23 June 2023. This survey provides an opportunity for students, teachers, parents and guardians to contribute their perspectives and help shape the future of education in Australia. 

Participants will be asked about student learning and wellbeing, teacher recruitment and retention, and funding transparency and accountability. 

The Expert Panel for the Review will use the results to help draft a consultation paper which will invite submissions from all stakeholders. Results will also inform the development of recommendations for the final report, which will advise Education Ministers on what targets and reforms should be included in the next National School Reform Agreement.
