The right evidence for improving education

VCOSS Submission to Productivity Commission’s inquiry into the national education evidence base4 November 2016  |  

In this submission VCOSS advocates for the development of a centralised data repository and coordination of the national education evidence so data and evidence can be easily accessed by federal, state and territory governments, across sectors and communities. This will mean they can better understand what is driving educational disadvantage and take actions to address this. We encourage mapping existing datasets to enhance existing data collections, reduce duplication and clarify their purpose.
