Grattan Institute's school education program director, Peter Goss, told The Educator that the report has some important take-aways for principals.

"Principals should do three things: push teacher training courses to put more priority on classroom management; ensure that all beginning teachers get a proper induction process where they can learn from a skilled teacher; and provide regular opportunities for all teachers to collaborate with their colleagues," he said.
"This is an investment, but if students learn more and teachers are less stressed then it will pay off in spades."
One of the key points from the report was that student engagement does not necessarily rely on old fashioned ideas about education. Goss said that as such, schools should rethink their approach when it comes to combating the issue.
"First, compliance is not the same as learning. Students who are passively disengaged might not be in trouble with their teacher, but they are on average 1-2 years behind their peers and that is setting them up for trouble in life," Goss said.
"Secondly, think about raising your expectations of students who are zoning our or acting out, rather than lowering them. We saw evidence that close to half of students say they are being challenged in class, and two of the top reasons for misbehaving and not participating are boredom and lack of challenge."
Goss added that the report confirms that low-level disruption and passive disengagement are "a serious problem, both for students and for teachers".
"There is no magic bullet, but building the skills of teachers to create effective learning environments would help. Too often today teachers are thrown in and forced to sink or swim in the classroom," he said.

Peter Goss, education program director at the Grattan Institute, said the contentious issue of overfunding has been a "huge political roadblock".

"Reducing overfunding is not the only thing that is needed to support schools that are underfunded but it's a necessary part of the process," Mr Goss told The New Daily.
"Signalling that they may be able to agree in a practical way around the overfunded schools is a step towards a more bipartisan approach. But much more is needed."
Late last year, Mr Goss unveiled an education compact aimed at quelling the toxicity in the funding debate.
He said a small number of schools needed their funding reduced and that the current indexed funding increases were excessive due to historically low inflation.


As Peter Goss, of the Grattan Institute, has demonstrated, we can go most of the way to needs-based funding quickly and without extra spending, provided we're prepared to shift funding from the less-needy to the more-needy.
