The aim of this emerging issues paper is to present the views heard by the panel during its preliminary listening tour that was undertaken during the latter part of 2010 across all states and territories. The panel heard views from over 70 education groups, including government and non-government education authorities, Indigenous education and special education representatives, and parent, principal, teacher and union groups. The views summarised in this paper are not those of the panel, but of those who generously shared their views with the panel. The issues and concerns raised in submissions to the review have also been incorporated. While a range of issues were raised, discussion broadly centred around seven key themes: (1) equity of educational outcomes; (2) recurrent funding; (3) capital funding; (4) targeted and needs-based funding, including funding for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students; (5) support for students with special needs and students with disability; (6) governance and leadership; and (7) community and family engagement.
