The long-awaited report of the federal government’s Review of Funding for Schooling
was released on February 20, along with the government’s response. While the initial focus has been on the recommended $5 billion price tag, the report’s other proposals have more value. In this Meet the Researcher
talk, CIS Research Fellow Jennifer Buckingham
will discuss the Gonski report and the ensuing public reaction, and whether the Gonski review represents a step forward or a wasted opportunity for major and lasting reform.
