The final report of the Independent Review into Regional, Rural and Remote Education, conducted by Emeritus Professor John Halsey was released and discussed at the Education Council meeting held recently in Adelaide.
Professor Halsey identified four priorities from his 11 recommendations:
- establishing a national focus for regional, rural and remote education, training and research to enhance access, outcomes and opportunities
- focussing on research for successful learning and building young people’s futures – school leadership, teaching, curriculum and assessment
- addressing the information communication and technology needs in regional, rural and remote locations
- focusing on the transitions into and out of school.
Ministers have requested that senior officials provide advice on the Report, including initial consideration of the Report’s recommendations, at the June 2018 Education Council meeting.
