The National School Reform Agreement is a joint agreement between the Commonwealth, states and territories to lift student outcomes across Australian schools. In December 2022, Education Ministers agreed to establish the Review to identify the reforms needed to drive real and measurable improvements for all students, particularly those most at risk of falling behind. The Review built on the work of the Productivity Commission and their review of the NSRA, released on 20 January 2023. This review highlighted key areas where reform is needed, including lifting student outcomes, reducing differences in outcomes across students, and supporting student wellbeing.
