    This commentary is spot on. How much evidence do the powers to be need? We have know about the hideous depth of inequality in Australian education for a considerable time now; the research has informed us without question. It's time for those who what to know and see the truth to visit schools and talk directly with Principals and their leadership teams to hear the realities of disadvantage and school improvement. Ask the questions about how some schools spend their days tending to which aspects of schooling and what does this mean for their capacity to concentrate on English and Mathematics outcomes? How many ever hear the reality and see what it takes - and what we don't have - to help shift the outcomes and rite the inequity.
