The Bryan Foundation, in partnership with funding partner, Tim Fairfax Family Foundation and Schools Plus, has recently brought the Fair Education program into Queensland schools.
Fair Education was first introduced to NSW in 2016 through a partnership between Schools Plus and Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation – following 12-months’ research and consultation with leading education industry experts.
The Fair Education program aims to create systemic change in the Queensland education system and improve the outcomes for some of the state’s most marginalised students.
The program is specifically designed to develop the capacity of school leaders in disadvantaged schools to design and deliver evidence-based initiatives that effectively engage families and communities in student learning.
The program aims to build the capacity of the school leadership teams to design and implement activities to strengthen family and community involvement, with grants accompanied by expert coaching to support schools in designing and rolling out their projects.
