Abstract: This framework for action in education for rural and remote areas of Queensland focuses on continuing to refine and improve quality rural and remote education services. It outlines the government’s commitment to addressing the key and emerging challenges of delivering education in the rural and remote areas of the state and achieving better learning outcomes for students living in these locations. It describes more than 60 key initiatives that are designed to facilitate continued excellence and improve education and training opportunities for students, educators and schools. The framework aligns with whole-of-government and departmental systemic reforms and programs, including ‘Blueprint for the bush’ and the ‘Education and training reforms for the future’ (indexed at TD/QLD 72.05). The contents are: Introduction: commitment to quality rural and remote education; Actions to meet the challenges and deliver results: relevant and engaged learning; respecting cultural diversity; ICT and multimodal delivery; personnel and workforce capability; environments and resourcing.
