Who can you trust

to deliver Quality Education for All?

We  will be rating the major education policies of key political parties in the lead-up to the state election. We will be scoring political commitments and policies according to how they stack up against the Quality Education for All plan.

The plan, or blueprint, was developed after months of extensive consultation and workshopping with our 5,500 educator members in 2017. It sets out the minimum staffing and other resources and policy urgently needed to enable our teachers, principals and teachers assistants to provide a quality education for all students in our schools, colleges and TAFE.

It does not cover every element of the Quality Education Plan but the areas we think are most relevant for political parties to be focussed on in the lead-up to the state election.
