Monday, 16 April, 2018

The report on an extensive review to guide efforts to overcome the educational divide between capital cities and regional and rural areas is now available to the public.

The Coalition Government today released the final report of the Independent Review into Regional, Rural and Remote Education, led by Emeritus Professor Dr John Halsey.

Professor Halsey identified four priorities from his 11 recommendations:

  1. establishing a national focus for regional, rural and remote education, training and research to enhance access, outcomes and opportunities
  2. focussing on research for successful learning and building young people’s futures – school leadership, teaching, curriculum and assessment
  3. addressing the information communication and technology needs in regional, rural and remote locations
  4. focusing on the transitions into and out of school.
