    This is an urgent and key point for parents and the rest of the public to be aware of.Policies that focus only grabbing headlines through promises of elitist colleges to "fix" education across the poorest areas in the country are unfair and short-sighted.Rather than doubling down on this divisive system of "elite sixth forms", the government should invest more in further education colleges that value ALL young people, not just the top performers who have access to private tuition. A well-funded further education system with skilled and valued teachers and engaging courses tailored to different skills and interests is the only way to unlock the potential of all young people during those crucial years after KS4.All of FE should be seen equally, providing opportunities for vocational development and hands-on training alongside academic routes. This plan does not provide this; it simply segregates students and leaves everyone else behind.

    “Our children are a future if we teach them well, they will lead the way,” from the Whitney Houston song highlights the importance of education and the role of policy makers in shaping the future through effective educational strategies.The expert report released by Education Minister Jason Clare, led by Lisa O’Brien, focuses on crucial reforms for the next National School Reform Agreement starting in January 2025. These reforms include improving student outcomes, equity, wellbeing, and teacher recruitment and retention. It’s notable that funding, a critical aspect, wasn’t included in their mandate.The commentary by Glenn Savage and Jacob Broom from the University of Melbourne underscores the importance of funding in educational reforms. The analogy of planning a family reunion in Disneyland without discussing transportation aptly illustrates the need to address practical means (like funding) to achieve set educational targets. This perspective suggests that without adequate resources, setting ambitious educational goals may be unrealistic.#EducationReform2025 #AustralianSchools#StudentOutcomes #EquityInEducation#WellbeingInSchools #TeacherRetention#EducationFunding #NationalSchoolReform#EducationPolicy #FutureOfLearning#TeachingExcellence #educationalequity https://lnkd.in/gyS26E4f

    A new report wants more funding and better support for Australian schools. But we need a proper plan for how to get there theconversation.com

    In case you missed the new State of the Student Report published by the Center on Reinventing Public Education earlier this month, The Thomas B. Fordham Institute's Victoria McDougald breaks down the takeaway in this great article. https://lnkd.in/gnrFVDzh “Given the magnitude of today’s educational crisis, both reports are a much-needed reminder that time is running out to help our nation’s students recover academically and to prepare them for successful futures, especially for students most in need of urgent solutions. As CRPE’s report concludes, “This is an all-hands-on-deck moment for the U.S. education system.” The time to take bold, collective action is now.PS — Check out an essay by Accelerate CEO Kevin Huffman on page 42 of the report! https://lnkd.in/gYe5Z7_x

    The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) published a report detailing the effects of unmet financial need on retention of students attending Kentucky's public institutions. Nearly 75% of college students have some level of unmet financial need; having unmet financial need means the cost of attendance is greater than the student's combined grants, scholarships, and family contribution. Several engaging statistics I took away from this report:- The higher the amount of unmet financial need, the less likely it becomes a student will remain in school. For example, at comprehensive institutions like Western Kentucky University, for every $1,000 of unmet need a student has, there is a 1.5% decline in the likelihood they will remain enrolled. - Students who took dual credit in high school are more likely to enroll full-time in post-secondary education and are more likely to have a 0.25 point higher GPA than their non-dual enrolled peers. Students with a higher GPA their first year are more likely to return for a second year.- In terms of college readiness, females have a 28.1% likelihood of being underprepared for college, compared to a 51.1% likelihood for males. This report challenged me to think about how college readiness and dual enrollment can play an important factor in the overall retention of students, as well as to consider what additional financial barriers may be in place for students and how unmet financial need can impact retention. Being aware of the different challenges to retention students may face allows me to be a more competent practitioner and better serve the unique needs of my students.#KYCPE #HigherEdMatters #FAFSA #PellGrants #KEES #KHEAAhttps://lnkd.in/e522qksi

    The tumultuous landscape of education is leading many parents to wonder if private school is the answer. Despite rising costs and challenging admissions policies, the benefits of private school education outweigh the risks for many families. The high percentage of undergraduates at the highest-ranked universities matriculating from private high schools underscores the power of their rigorous standards and overall influence on university admissions. Better university placement opportunities lead to substantial additional earnings after graduation. If your endgame is ensuring a stable financial future for your child, a private school education might be the right option if you are willing (and able) to pay the price tag of enrollment.
