Everything we do in education is aimed at achieving great results for our kids. We’re improving our schools by focusing on teacher quality, giving school communities and principals more say in how their schools are run, and enhancing student discipline.
Our strong plan for a brighter future has delivered the Great Teachers = Great Results action plan, so our kids are taught by the best and brightest teachers.
Our Great Results Guarantee is ensuring our youngest students get a boost in literacy and numeracy to support lifelong learning.
We’re giving mums, dads and school communities a greater say in the important decisions, through the Independent Public Schools program.
We’ve delivered 761 more teacher and teacher aides, and we’re building 10 new schools to meet growing demand across our great state.
We want our kids to be proud of the school they attend. That’s why we’ve invested $300 million to tackle the school maintenance backlog. This means rusty pipes, ripped carpet and peeling paint has been fixed in schools right across Queensland.
Schools should be a place of pride for students to learn, teachers to teach, and communities to gather. That’s why we’ve invited you to contribute to a thirty year vision through Queensland’s first Education Accord.
This vision will build on the Queensland Plan to determine priorities for our schools and ensure present and future students are given the best possible education and job opportunities.
A brighter future is ours for the taking, but only under a disciplined government with a strong plan to deliver for Queensland.
