This report examines how to achieve the best education for students progressing through twelve years of school. The majority of committee members conclude that a more rigorous approach to teacher training and to curriculum design is required to improve educational achievement levels across the country.

In a dissenting report, opposition senators take the view that a lack of time and resources means that the inquiry has had only limited usefulness, and that the conclusions drawn in the committee majority report, and the recommendations made, need to be treated with caution.
