Letter to the Editor - Non-state Schools
Letter to the Editor, published in The Courier-Mail on 2 November 2019
It is disappointing that misconceptions about Queensland’s non-state schooling sector continue to be perpetuated by surveys as reported in The Courier-Mail, (Nov 1).
Queensland’s independent schooling sector is more diverse than ever. Over the past 10 years the majority of new schools in the sector are primarily specialist schools for at-risk and disengaged students or small low-fee regional and suburban schools driven by parents and communities who want greater school choice.
The survey findings stand in stark contrast to the increasing numbers of families who have researched their education choices and believe their local independent school will provide the right environment to help their children realise their full potential.
