The SeeThrough Vision
We believe students, parents, schools, teachers and policy makers are armed with the information they need to ensure positive learning outcomes for all Australian students.
We believe every parent has the right to source opinions, experiences and information directly from other parents and past members of school communities.
We believe open and transparent conversations about schools are crucial to achieving significant reform.
For almost two decades, the quality of Australia’s education system has experienced a staggering decline, with a 2018 comparison of the 37 OECD countries ranking Australia at an all-time low of 18th.
A reported $34.7 billion in 2019, a 79% (and growing) real increase in government spending since the turn of the century, has only brought with it unprecedented underachievement.
A chasm has emerged between our highest and lowest performing students, and a shocking 41% of Australian 15 year olds are incapable of even reaching minimum national standards in reading.
SeeThrough has no political affiliations, but do we have an agenda? Yes!
We want to help make Australia’s schooling system the best in the world, to ensure the future of our own children, and all children in our nation. We don’t have all the answers, but by providing a platform for you to give us your experiences, your articles, and your opinions, we hope that we can really be a source of positive change.
Maintaining independence from learning and government institutions is a vital element of how we operate.
We believe that everyone has the right to source and provide this information in an environment that protects them from retribution, so all our reviews are anonymous.
Schools will only know an anonymous parent, teacher or past student has written a review after the review is published, with no opportunities to interfere or influence these reviews or their ratings in any way.
In order to maintain the integrity of our reviews, we use human moderators, and encourage our community members to report any suspicious reviews.
If our moderators don’t think that your review meets our guidelines, we will contact you where possible, and endeavour to work with you to try and ensure it does, to give you the best opportunity to have your voice heard.
