Independent Review into Regional, Rural and Remote Education

Independent review into regional, rural and remote education
Country students will be the focus of an independent review into regional, rural and remote education. The review would like to hear of your experiences and feedback about education in regional, rural and remote contexts.

I’m encouraging you to make a submission!

The submission process is open to all members of the public and is looking for fresh ideas for solutions and share information about innovative approaches that benefit regional, rural and remote students.

Emeritus Professor John Halsey has prepared a discussion paper on key educational challenges and issues that impact on the learning outcomes of students in regional, rural and remote communities. It also poses questions to stimulate ideas about how education outcomes for these students could be improved.

Submissions can be made via the online submission form until 5.00 PM AEST Tuesday 29 August 2017.

If you have any queries about the review please contact the Review Secretariat at IRRRRESecretariat@education.gov.au.

Stakeholder Consultations

Building on the findings of the public submissions, Professor Halsey will lead face-to-face consultations during July and October 2017 with organisations, institutions and people passionate about regional, rural and remote education. These will include representatives from the education community, families, employer groups and the philanthropic sector.

The final report and recommendations will be provided to the Government by the end of 2017.
