THE Queensland Government has a continuing commitment to ensure that all students, no matter where they live, have access to a range of high quality education and training programs.

According to the Department of Education and Training's website, nearly half of all state schools in Queensland are in rural and remote locations, with approximately one-quarter of state school students enrolled in these schools.

The department said it recognised the dedication to quality teaching and learning at state schools in rural and remote locations.

"The department also recognises the unique challenges of teaching and learning in rural and remote schools and is committed to addressing the particular needs of students living in geographically isolated areas,” it said on its website.

"Students in Queensland's rural and remote communities deserve the very best educational opportunities we can provide. Financial assistance and programs may be available for eligible students and these communities.”

The department is consulting on a new plan to support every student succeeding in rural and remote state schools.

"Students in Queensland's rural and remote communities deserve the very best educational opportunities we can provide.,” the department said.

"The government is committed to addressing the particular needs of students living in geographically isolated areas.

"This plan will refocus the department's commitment rural and remote education.”
