Townsville Bulletin - - News -

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.
