School closures – many questions still remain
25 November 2013
In the fallout from the Education Minister’s announcement that he would close six Queensland state schools, many questions remain to be answered for the sake of the specific school communities affected and for the wider Queensland public.
These include What on-going support will be given to students forced to relocate to different schools? What are the Minister's plans for the sites? and What will be the impact on surrounding schools?
- Minister Langbroek's announcement, 17 Sep 2013
- Community consultation reports on each of the schools earmarked for closure
- Revised catchment maps for schools in the areas affected by the closures
- QTU response to the release of the JTA reports and the Minister's decisions
