Parental School Choice in Australia

Led by Fiona Mueller, the CIS education program focuses on School Choice and School Funding among its key areas of research.

School choice continues to be a policy area that attracts considerable public attention, particularly concerning funding strategies. Choosing a school is important to parents, but new CIS research shows that many experience buyer’s remorse.

To coincide with the release of our upcoming report on school choice, we held a discussion moderated by Fiona Mueller CIS education program director. The panel featured Glenn Fahey CIS research fellow, Dallas McInerney, CEO of Catholic Schools NSW, Michael Nuttall, Executive Officer of Australian Primary Principals Association and Dianne Giblin, CEO of Australian Council of State School Organisations.
