The latest Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) report has revealed the impact of the Federal Government’s deeply inequitable school funding policy and its failure to provide targeted resources and support to address the lower achievement levels for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Australian Education Union Federal President Correna Haythorpe said that the Gonski Report had set out a way to fix these structural issues nearly ten years ago, but TIMSS 2019 had exposed the Federal Government’s lack of interest in building a truly needs-based school funding system to address the entrenched inequity in Australian schools.
