Increased Funding not the Answer to Improved Education Outcomes

A Study by the Centre for Independent Studies (https://www.cis.org.au/) shows increased funding for schools is not necessarily key to improvement in school performance. A study of disadvantaged primary schools found that key to making a disadvantaged school into a high achieving one was:

  • school discipline

  • direct and explicit instruction

  • experienced and autonomous school leadership

  • data informed practice

  • teacher collaboration and professional learning

  • comprehensive early reading instruction
