Enhancing school improvement reform in New South Wales (Australia)
The New South Wales (Australia) Government is committed to an education
system that prepares learners for rewarding lives and lifelong learning.
To realise this, the NSW Department of Education (DoE) has initiated several
reforms in recent years, including the Local Schools Local Decisions (LSLD)
reform (2011) that was replaced by the School Success Model (SSM) reform
The SSM is a school improvement reform that aimed to deliver high quality,
tiered support to all NSW public schools. The SSM also strives for a
balance of autonomy and accountability for student improvement across schools
by formalising system targets and priorities, among others, through a tailored
school support framework.
Realising successful educational change however is complex. The DoE invited
the OECD Implementing Education Policies project team to build on lessons
from past reforms and receive feedback from the education profession and
other stakeholders. Drawing from OECD’s international knowledge base and
expertise, this report presents an in-depth assessment and offers concrete
recommendations for enhancing the design and implementation of the DoE school
improvement and broader education reform agenda.
