The Queensland Government has a continuing commitment to ensure that all students, no matter where they live, have access to a range of high quality education and training programs.
Over half of all state schools in Queensland are located in rural and remote locations, with approximately one-quarter of state school students enrolled in these schools. The Department recognises the dedication to quality teaching and learning occurring in state schools in rural and remote locations.
The Department has developed an Action Plan for Rural and Remote Education for 2011-2015 1.4M, which outlines the strategies being implemented by the Department to drive excellence in rural and remote schools.
