Rural and Remote locations in Australia provide the greatest challenges for improving provision of education options and pathways for children and families. Many children attend small schools with limited subject availability. More isolated schools consist of one teacher classrooms that comprise multi-levels from Prep to year 6.
Air and road travel are essential modes of travel for rural and remote living and education as long distances are not avoidable and most times difficult with current challenges for families.
