A large proportion of Australian students only reach minimum standards of literacy and numeracy. These students are spread throughout education systems; few schools do not have poor performing students who would benefit from improved education. After decades of rising expenditure, student performance has stagnated. We have a moral imperative to improve the performance of the 30% of year 9 students who have achieved only the very basic elements of writing literacy.
