In February 2013, the then-coalition promised to raise the transition rate from primary to secondary school to 90%, while improving transition rates from secondary to tertiary and university level. It however did not give the period it intended to do this, leaving an open door given it won re-election.

The primary to secondary transition rates have since been published as follows:
