Its objectives are:

  • for Australian schooling to provide an excellent education for school students;
  • for Australian schooling to be highly equitable; and
  • for Australia to be ranked, by 2025, as one of the top five performing countries based on the performance of Australian school students in reading, mathematics and science, and based on the quality and equity of Australian schooling
