A new education initiative called the NETschool is being started in Australia. This association is currently based in Victoria and exists to help youths from 15-20 years of age who are having difficulty learning in the mainstream education system.

The NETschool provides each student with one-on-one coaching, and each student can choose the subjects they want to learn. This can be done in two ways: The student can either do it entirely online or the student can choose to go to the center itself.

Those who opt to do it online will receive their work through emails and telephone calls. They will also have to occasionally meet up with their mentors. The NETschool was implemented in the hopes that everyone can have access to an education.
