Expectations have been raised in Australia and comparable countries for an 'education revolution' that will secure success for all students in all settings. Such a revolution must ensure the alignment of educational outcomes, the skills required for a strong economy, and the needs of a harmonious society.

Why not the Best Schools? The Australia Report is part of a set of six country reports that support Why not the best schools?.

It contains seven case studies of successful schools in Australia and examines the reasons for their success. Through interviews with principals, other school leaders and analysis of school reports, the report examines how these schools achieved transformation and success by actively developing and building strength in four kinds of capital:

  1. Intellectual
  2. Social
  3. Financial
  4. Spiritual
