The recommendations from the Valuing the Teaching Profession, or 'Gallop Inquiry', have been welcomed ahead of a meeting in Tamworth this week.
Based in Tamworth, the NSW Teacher's Federation country organiser Mercurius Goldstein said it was essential the "comprehensive" findings were adopted by the NSW Government.
"Not only are they achievable, they are necessary to deliver on the promise of education for every young person in NSW," he said.
Among the list of recommendations, teachers' salaries needed to increase by up to 15 per cent by 2022 to 2023, an extra two hours were needed for class preparation, and at least one school counsellor was needed for every 500 students.
Inquiry chairman Dr Geoff Gallop and NSW Teachers Federation President Angelo Gavrielatos will be visiting Tamworth on Wednesday to meet with teachers.
Action from the government was now needed to explain how the "comprehensive blueprint" provided by the inquiry would be delivered, Mr Goldstein said.
Education Minister Sarah Mitchell said the recommendations had only been just released, but said many were in line with the department's current reforms.
The Parry School in Tamworth was one of over 1000 to make a submission to the inquiry at the end of last year, but couldn't comment on the recommendations.
Mr Goldstein said the government had already halted any further pay rises for the public sector, including teachers, but was asking them to do more than ever before. He said it was indicative of a failed system.
"Let's recall in the pandemic last year when teachers were essential frontline workers ... but what the NSW Government has done, is put a handbrake on salary increases for a decade but it's been foot to the floor for workload," he said.
"I'm no mechanic, but if someone were to put on the car handbrake while putting their foot hard on the accelerator, you'd burn out."
The report surmised most teachers were pulling 55 hour weeks, with principals putting in over 60 hours.
Another element is constant staffing pressure to find and allocate teachers, with the right qualifications, to cover every classroom, Mr Goldstein said.
"The department is not using the authority it already has to allocate staff to schools across NSW," he said.
"Instead, they have made it a local school's problem to find teachers when they have the ability and, frankly, the authority to appoint teachers to schools in rural towns across NSW - as they have done on many, countless occasions in past decades."
Ms Mitchell wouldn't respond to Mr Goldstein's comments directly, but said she understood "many of the proposals support the work we are currently doing".
"I am acutely aware of the need to support all students across NSW to achieve their best, which is why we continue to reform education and deliver on our commitments," she said.
