Labor education spokeswoman Tanya Plibersek said on 6 September that Australia’s school system is in general a high-performing one, but that there was always room for improvement. Plibersek said that if Labor wins the next election that it will introduce an assessment system that focuses on progress rather than achievement, which was one of the main recommendations of the Gonski review into education excellence. Another recommendation that Labor plans to adopt is an increased focus in the curriculum on capabilities such as problem-solving and creativity.
