What to do about regional education

The feds have released a “framing paper” to inform submissions to the expert advisory group on regional, rural and remote education chaired by Denis Napthine (CMM).

Core issues are; expanding post-school education and training opportunities in RRR areas, financial, social and psychological support for RRR students relocating to study, increasing aspiration to tertiary education in RRR communities, support for disadvantaged prospective and Indigenous students, using tertiary education to expand economic opportunity in RRRR areas and the case for and role of a national regional education commissioner.

The paper is part of Education Minister Dan Tehan’s $134m regional education package, which the government obviously assumes interest groups are across – response to the paper are due tomorrow week.
