a)         all children are engaged in and benefiting from schooling;

b)        young people are meeting basic literacy and numeracy standards, and overall levels of literacy and numeracy achievement are improving;

c)         Australian students excel by international standards;

d)        schooling promotes the social inclusion and reduces the education disadvantage of children, especially Indigenous children; and

e)        young people make a successful transition from school to work and further study.
