The EIC states that four "cornerstones" must be set in place to ensure the ongoing improvement of public education. They are:
1. assurance that children start school ready to learn, by funding full-day junior and senior kindergarten;
2. a stronger commitment to professional development and a review of leadership requirements for senior staff, to strengthen the leadership of the system;
3. an end to confrontation, to create a positive climate for learning
4. greater accountability for student achievement, to build and sustain public confidence in the education system.
In addition to supporting full-time kindergarten, the EIC also recommends that the government ensures affordable, high quality child care programs for children.
