Over one in six children lived at or below the poverty line in 2010.

The Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth 2018 report card paints a worrying picture for young people in Australia:

In 2014, 17.4 per cent of children aged up to 14 were living in households earning less than half national median household earnings. In 2014-15, 15.4% of Australians aged 18-24 years suffered high or very high psychological distress. In 2017, 20% of those aged 15-19 were extremely or very worried about family conflict and 15.3% were very or extremely concerned about bullying. Obesity, long-term youth unemployment, children in out-of-home-care (OOHC), the proportion of youth in prison (aged 18-24), and suicide rates have been increasing.

In addition, international testing suggests that our education system is falling behind, with our world ranking dropping across Maths (-13 places), reading (-9 places) and science (-8 places) between 2000 and 2012.
