Australian educators are asking big questions about how schools need to adapt to better equip students for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, given the rapid economic and societal changes taking place globally.
Here and around the world, there is a growing push for education systems to engage more closely with industry and civil society to ensure schools get it right. The Association of Independent Schools of New South Wales believes this dialogue between educators and business and civil society leaders is overdue.
To stimulate thinking and ideas for educational improvement, AISNSW commissioned a report titled CEO Perspectives: The Future of Schooling in Australia. The project involved interviews with leaders about their priorities and ideas for change. Our member schools know it is more important than ever to be engaged with what is happening outside the school gates. We know it’s the only way to better prepare students for fulfilling future careers and lives.
