As part of its 5-year Productivity Inquiry, the Productivity Commission has released an interim report outlining potential opportunities to improve Australia’s school and tertiary education systems. Feedback on the 5-year Productivity Inquiry: From learning to growth is now invited.
The report considers improvements that support:
-schools to provide the foundational skills required to improve economic performance, including through effective teaching practices and better use of technology in the classroom;
– post-school education to develop the skills demanded by Australian businesses, achieved through better targeting government investment and loan arrangements, among other factors;
– better student outcomes in post-school education, by encouraging quality and relevant teaching and facilitating completion where it is in the best interest of students.
Submissions close on 21 October 2022 and can be made at www.pc.gov.au
