The summit will bring together teachers, academics, community groups, elected officials and other public education stakeholders.

Over two days we’ll ask questions and consider models for economic investment, school funding, the National School Reform Agreement, political capital, initial teacher education, decolonisation in the classroom, wellness, student-led learning, teaching culture, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community connection, supportive practices and inclusion.

Think interactive discussions, insightful panels and practical workshops – all focussed on public education and its role in creating a just and inclusive society.

Join us as we outline the visions, challenges and solutions needed in ensuring that every child and young person has access to high quality public education.
