Review of middle schooling

A review of middle schooling in the Northern Territory (NT) was commissioned by the NT government in 2014 to identify opportunities to strengthen the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of the middle years of education after the model was introduced eight years ago.

The review included extensive consultation with school principals and teachers, parents and students.

The review report was published in September 2014.
