Shadow Education Minister Dr Christian Rowan
I would like to wish all students every success in their NAPLAN tests this week.
The last two and a half years have been a challenge for our school communities.
I want to thank staff, students, parents and other educators for their dedication and commitment.
NAPLAN helps schools identify areas where extra support and improvements are needed.
Queensland has consistently underperformed in literacy and numeracy compared with the southern states.
It is important that we improve in these areas.
Our schools, teachers and students deserve more support from the State Government to reach the levels and outcomes we know they can achieve.
