As a nation, Australia values the central role of education in building a democratic, equitable and just society.
State, Territory and Commonwealth Education Ministers have committed to working together to ensure high-quality schooling for all young Australians. The Melbourne Declaration is a result of this commitment and acknowledges that major changes in the world are placing new demands on Australian education. The goals identified in this document seek to enable the highest possible engagement and outcomes for Australian students.
