More top teachers for regions

Education Minister Dan Tehan announces $15m more for quality teachers, especially in STEM subjects, to work in regional, rural and remote schools

This will nearly double participants in the Teach for Australia, to 250 in RRR locations and fund school leadership programmes there.

It’s part of a start to a problem research for the Regional Universities Network warned about last, year – a coming shortage of teachers, which will be “acutely felt” in RRR communities. (CMM October 30).
