Queensland's first school opened in 1826 with 16 pupils, the children of soliders and convicts from the first settlement in Moreton Bay. It was not until 1860, however, that the first Education Act was proclaimed and all primary education was placed under one general and comprehensive system controlled by the Board of General Education.

This chronology of education in Queensland provides a factual outline of the major milestones and trends in the development of state education.
