In June 2020, Grattan Institute published a report called COVID catch-up: helping disadvantaged students close the equity gap. What we didn’t know was the impact this report would go on to have across Australia.
One year later, half-a-billion dollars of funding has been dedicated to tutoring programs from both NSW and Victorian governments, and students are now getting the very real support they need. It’s proof of the power of good policy research to change Australia for the better.
Join Kat Clay, Head of Digital Communications, Jordana Hunter, Education Program Director, and Julie Sonnemann, Education Fellow, as they chart the course of this impactful report – and where education policy can go from here.
