Abstract

The most recent Australian report from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) presented evidence that socioeconomically disadvantaged students in Australia were achieving at a level about three years behind their socioeconomically advantaged peers. In terms of proficiency, 57 per cent of disadvantaged students were not achieving at the National Proficient Standard (set by ACARA as the minimum expectation of student achievement), compared to 21 per cent of advantaged students.
