Breaking the Cycle

A snapshot of educational disadvantage in Australia, why teaching and school leadership matters and how you can help break the cycle.

In Australia, there is inequity between the educational outcomes of students from different backgrounds. Without addressing this inequity, the education gap grows over time. If carried on to the next generation, a cycle of disadvantage is created.

Breaking the Cycle provides a snapshot of educational disadvantage in Australia.

Read about the challenges facing students in our education system and find out why quality teaching and school leadership matters.

Every day, people dedicate their professional lives to this cause or donate time, resources or funds to schools and education-based organisations that work to confront educational disadvantage.

Still, too many children are not able to reach their potential at school.

Find out how you can contribute to an Australia where all children, regardless of background, attain an excellent education.
