The annual National Report on Schooling in Australia (ANR) is published by the Ministerial Council on Employment, Education, Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA) through its Secretariat. The aim of the ANR is to detail the scope of schooling in Australia and describe the activities of the sector, monitor the effects and progress of policy initiatives, and detail the source, volume and direction of education finances.
The ANR is a compilation of data provided by state and federal education agencies, both through the finance and non-finance National Schools Statistics Collections, and from specialist work commissioned or delivered by MCEETYA itself. Other sources include NCVER vocational education data, and ABS social surveys. The report is delivered to Australian parliaments to inform policy makers and the Australian public.
The ANR is divided into the following ten sections:
Ch. 1: The Context of Australian Schooling
Ch. 2: Resourcing Australia's Schools
Ch. 3: Measuring the Performance of Australian Schooling
Ch. 4: Attendance, Participation and Attainment
Ch. 5: National Assessment Program: Literacy and Numeracy
Ch. 6: Science, Civics and Citizenship and Information and Communication Technology
Ch. 7: International Assessments
Ch. 8: Indigenous Education
Ch. 9: Vocational Education
Ch. 10: Additional Statistics on Australian Schooling.
Annual ANR publications from 2000 onwards are available online from the National Report on Schooling in Australia home page of the MCEETYA website. Note that MCEETYA publishes ANR reports on their website progressively. The intention is to publish the complete ANR by August or September of the year following the reference year. Data are available for Australia, the states and territories, and some sub-state characteristics for selected items, via the MCEETYA website.
