Educational inequity in the ACT

In the ACT, single postcodes often experience both high and low rankings on different indicators. Unlike other locations around the country, the ACT has one of the highest proportions of diverse suburbs, with individuals of varying socioeconomic status living side by side.

Research shows that in the ACT, 1 in 3 students whose parents didn’t finish Year 12 do not meet national Year 7 academic milestones for literacy and numeracy. If their parents have a Bachelor’s degree or higher however, that number drops to 1 in 10.
