One year ago, we released our first Australian family survey on schooling during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We had more than 3000 responses and gained valuable insights which have since helped us advocate strongly with governments and schools over adequately supporting children and their families in these - as the saying goes - 'extraordinary times'.
Today we release our follow-up survey, which will pursue the major themes from our first survey:
We urge you to share it as widely as you can on your school's email lists and social media pages.
We'd love to know how families are going now that we have had more time to adjust to the 'extraordinary'. Questions of wellbeing, online access, and financial impact are covered in the new survey.
Commenting from a national perspective will contribute to and comment on debates and decisions affecting public education, ranging from funding to curriculum and from national testing programs to school starting.
Forty years of research shows considerable evidence for the importance of family engagement in school. Our website provides tools and links which support family engagement practices in schools and how families encourage learning at home and in the community.
