Evidence from the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is clear that simply providing more funding does not in itself improve student outcomes. The OECD has found that for high-income countries like Australia it matters more how money is spent, than how much is spent.
A strong level of funding is necessary, and we have that, but what is more important is to ensure that funding is being used on initiatives proven to boost student results.
The Review will build an evidence base to ensure funding on the ground is used in ways that make a difference to student outcomes.
