The Public Education Foundation is involved in public education advocacy and contributes to discussions on education policy issues. Our role is to promote Australia’s high quality public education system as an essential part of an equitable and socially cohesive society.

“Research overwhelmingly shows that disadvantage is not only the significant factor in student performance but also in a country’s international education rankings. It’s only through equity in education that we can excel as a nation.”

David Hetherington, Public Education Foundation Executive Director
