The Commonwealth Minister for Education and Training has called for a review into regional, rural and remote education with a view to considering the key ideas, challenges and barriers that impact on the learning outcomes of students. Download the discussion Paper for the Independent Review into Regional, Rural and Remote Education. You may also complete the online submission by 5.00 PM AEST Tuesday 29th August 2017.
 
Professor Halsey has released a discussion paper based on nine themes:
• Curriculum and assessment
• Teachers and teaching
• Leaders and leadership
• School and community
• Information and communication technology
• Entrepreneurship and schools
• Improving access – enrolments, clusters, distance education and boarding
• Diversity
• Transitioning beyond school
 
At RDA Wheatbelt we believe that Education is a key to the future of not only our students, but to the success of the Wheatbelt as a region. In May we enlisted the aid of stakeholders via surveys to help make sure it is an accurate reflection of the views of parents and teachers within the region.
