This Guide and the companion case studies, report the largest assessment ever conducted in Australia of needs, interests, priorities, opportunities, achievements and challenges in the field of philanthropy in education. A notable feature is that, while the rank order may differ in small ways, the needs of schools and the priorities of the philanthropic sector lie in efforts to ensure that all students in all sectors succeed. This they seek to accomplish at a time when concerns are raised about the large gap in achievement of low and high performing students and when the challenge in transforming schooling in the digital age must be addressed.
