P.C.A.P. Project Profiles. Queensland Priority Country Area Program--Evaluation Series.
Fowler, C. F.; Peters, J. E.
Thirty-two projects designed to improve educational opportunities of rural Queensland children were funded as part of the Disadvantaged Schools Program in 1979 and 1980. This program resulted from a 1977-79 Schools Commission report which suggested that students in country areas may be disadvantaged compared to urban dwellers, with respect to variety of available experiences and opportunities. The $1 million a year program with a full-time staff of over 40 funded such projects as: (1) itinerant teacher service; (2) mobile manual arts; (3) specially produced television programs; (4) mobile classrooms; (5) isolated children's special education; (6) mobile field study; (7) instrumental music programs; (8) remedial/resource services; (9) specialist recreation support; (10) opportunities for exceptional children; (11) cultural activities; (12) career information; (13) mini-buses and subsidized coaches; (14) audiovisual maintenance; (15) regional newspaper development; (16) teacher aides; (17) summer schools; (18) updating school libraries; (19) regional home economics and music centres; (20) speech therapy services; (21) outback mobile teaching services; (22) hydroponics; (23) video recording/library services; (24) resource kits; (25) manual arts by correspondence; and (26) vocational reference centres.
