Education Minister Dr David Coleman has announced the launch of a new public schools initiative.
Dr Coleman says the idea public schools is about building relationships between the community and schools.
“The new initiative is about bringing together schools and parents, community members, teachers, and administrators to discuss how we can work together to create a school experience that is accessible, equitable and relevant to all children.”
He says the new public school initiative will work with the existing school system to create “a school experience for all”.
Dr Cole says the initiative is part of the Government’s plan to build the nation’s first National Education Alliance (NEA).
“It’s important to remember the NEA is the Government of Australia’s education system.
It’s a public partnership, which means all of our schools are part of this effort to build a better future for our children.”

In its new role, the NEAs goal is to help deliver the best possible outcomes for all children in Australia’s schools.
In an interview with Radio National this morning, Dr Coleman said he wanted the NEAS to be a “national conversation tool” to bring together all of the stakeholders to “build a better school experience”.
He said the NEAts goal is “to create a great school experience and we are building a National Education Partnership to do just that”.

It also has an area of responsibility in schools.
The NEAs mandate is to develop a “school experience for every child” and to help achieve that through the creation of a “School Future Strategy”.
The new plan comes after years of discussion with school leaders across the country.
During that time, Dr Cole says he has listened to the community’s feedback and the NE At has been “well received” by stakeholders.
“We are seeing a lot of positive feedback from people who want to know how the NE Schools model can be used to create better learning experiences for our kids and families,” he said.
The first NEA session will be held on November 14.
Earlier today, Education Minister David Coleman announced the first NEAs meeting.
He announced that the first meeting will be a public forum where schools and families will be able to have their say on a “National Education Partnership”.
“This is a first step in our efforts to deliver a better education experience for our students and our communities,” Dr Coleman says.

The National Education Association is the National Education Minister’s initiative to help build a national education alliance.
What does that mean?
NEA means the Government and its Member State’s Education Departments are working together to build an alliance to build schools that meet the needs of all children.
A National Education Partner means the National Minister’s Department or agency has a responsibility for building a school for all Australian students.
When will NEAs meet?
A meeting will take place on November 13.
This will be the first time NEAs have met to discuss NEAs strategy.
After the meeting, NEAs will meet again to discuss their plans for the future of NEAs.
Why does Dr Coleman say NEAs plan is ‘well received’?
Dr Bryant Coleman says that the response to NEAs new strategy is “well regarded” by the community.
“We know that many families and schools are very concerned by the level of funding that NEAs is currently receiving,” he says.
“But I also know that a lot families are worried about the lack of a plan for NEAs future.”
“Many schools are struggling to meet the basic needs of their children and many schools are facing a shortage of resources.
So we have a number of ideas that we are looking at.”
Why did Dr Coleman choose to use NEAs words?
“NEAs words are the right words, the right phrase, to describe what NEAs aims to achieve,” Dr Bryant Coleman said.
“The National Council of Education are looking for words that resonate with the families, that fit with the NEI concept and they are keen to hear what NEA’s vision is.”
What else is NEA planning?
NeA has released a number proposed projects, including:A pilot of NEA-funded school space to support school attendance and student development in remote communities.
A pilot in which NEAs would be responsible for developing new schools.
A new NEA School Future Strategy which aims to create schools that will reflect the “future aspirations” of our children and families.
