Monash Commission to set an education agenda

Great timing by Margaret Gardner

The Monash University Commission report on post-compulsory education launches next Wednesday. The commission, chaired by Elizabeth Proust, was created by VC Margaret Gardner to, “to design policy options that make a substantive contribution to addressing key challenges for Australia and our region and to shape a vision for the future … Systemic change will come only by presenting compelling evidence, as well as ideas, to government and community,”, (CMM May 1 2018).

If Labor wins the election, Professor Gardner’s timing will be brilliant – the Monash report would make for a substantial submission to the new government’s promised post-secondary review.
