National authorities writing candidly

Academics from the Sydney School of Education and Social Work sit on policy-setting boards and influential panels that help set the nation's agenda about topics ranging from paid care, child protection and public housing to national curricula in mathematics, personal development and the arts.

This section of the school website is a forum for their considered responses to the education and social work stories of the day. It is provided as a forum for engaging the national conversation, and the opinions expressed here by the school's academics are their own, and are not necessarily shared by the school, the University or sources of funding for their research.
