The Commercialisation in Public Schooling: Final Report Summary reveals teachers are concerned about the influence commercialisation is having in schools.

The Commercialisation in Public Schooling was commissioned by the NSW Teachers Federation and conducted by Professor Bob Lingard of the University of Queensland’s School of Education and a team which included Dr Sam Sellar (Manchester Metropolitan University), Dr Anna Hogan (University of Queensland) and Associate Professor Greg Thompson (Queensland University of Technology).
