State wants school ideas
QUEENSLAND principals and parents will be asked for their ideas to i m p r o v e t h e s t a t e ’ s school system.
T h e n e w e d u c a t i o n minister, Cameron Dick, yesterday announced a series of workshops to identify what works in schools and where the gaps are.
The ideas will form the foundation for several pilot programs, Mr Dick told a principals conference in Brisbane.
The programs would s p a n a r e a s i ncl udi ng managing student behaviour to school uniforms, and support for students with disabilities.
‘‘ All schools face different challenges, however, if all of our state schools can r ai s e t heir s t andards, then our children’s futures can be that much better,’’ he said.
