Independent review into regional, rural and remote education

The NFF asserts that all Australians should have equitable access to appropriate education and training services, regardless of their geographical location. As such, funding models for non-metropolitan education and training provisions should ensure equity of access to education and training and recognise the higher costs of operating in regional, rural and remote areas. The NFF believe that the three key areas that need to be focused on, if Australia is to improve the educational outcomes of non-metropolitan Australians includes: Addressing the inequality between metropolitan and non-metropolitan students; assessing and addressing the agricultural skill needs of the future; and ensuring that agriculture features in the National Curriculum.
