Parent survey on education issues

This survey is a chance for parents to have their say on education and school issues. It should only take a 3 minutes to complete, but you are very welcome to add more detail and comments. All responses will be kept anonymous.

With a federal election looming, the Australian Parents Council (APC) and its state and territory affiliate organisations, believe it is vitally important that the voice of parents is heard.

The findings of this survey will help us advocate for parents across the political landscape, so thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and concerns with us. 

APC is an apolitical, non-profit organisation representing the interests of parents with children at non-government schools. All parents and carers are welcome to complete this survey, wherever your child goes to school.
