Thank you for helping shape the Education State

Thank you to all those people from the Macedon electorate who took the opportunity to participate in this important conversation about what needs to be done to make Victoria the Education State.

It has been encouraging to see such passionate and constructive discussions about our education system.

The main themes from the six forums held at schools and community centres across the electorate have been distilled into the report below, which has been submitted to the Education Minister, James Merlino.

Based on the input of you and others, the Government will develop a range of proposals to help deliver the Education State from later this year.

Future consultation phases will focus on early childhood and vocational education and training.

If you have any further questions about the Education State consultation, please contact the Education State Consultation team at the Department of Education and Training via email:
