The Queensland Government is investing an additional $131 million in 2014 to improve student performance in Queensland state schools through the Great Results Guarantee.
Over 4 years almost $800 million will be invested in Queensland state schools. This additional funding is being provided to every state, territory and schooling sector by the Federal Government under its Students First - A fairer funding agreement for schools initiative.
All 1233 state and Independent Public Schools will receive a share of the funding and enter into an agreement that commits them to guarantee that every student will either:
- achieve the National Minimum Standard for literacy and numeracy for their year level or
- have an evidence-based plan, developed by the school, in place to address their specific learning difficulties.
