The Australian Government in Queensland is committed to an education system that pursues excellence for all Australian schools and where every child receives the highest quality education.

This commitment has been backed through both a national agenda for school reform and unprecedented investment.

Major reform priorities set by the government include raising the quality of teaching in our schools, ensuring all students are benefitting from schooling, especially in disadvantaged communities, improving literacy and numeracy outcomes, and improving the transparency and accountability of schools and school systems at all levels.
