2 Weeks Out, Where's The Rural Education Conversation?
Posted on June 19, 2016
The election campaign is on the downhill run and rural and remote education has not yet been discussed. Neither Party has addressed the important issues that affect students in the bush nor advised what plans will be put in place to stop families leaving their homes and livelihood to access an affordable education for their children.
The Isolated Children’s Parents’ Association (ICPA) Australia is urging our nation’s leaders to indicate how they will ensure all rural and remote children can gain equitable access to education. Australia needs to keep a skilled workforce in the bush. Children need to be kept in school.
Now is the time to prioritise affordable access to education.
