The Rural and Remote Education Advisory Council of Western Australia developed a 4-year plan to improve educational access, participation, and achievement by rural people of Western Australia. The plan outlines seven priorities: (1) ensuring that rural students are able to participate in quality education and training; (2) ensuring a broad cross-sectoral partnership approach to educational provision in rural Western Australia; (3) implementing strategies to recruit and retain qualified educational professionals; (4) meeting the needs of rural students at risk; (5) ensuring that cultural diversity, including Aboriginal cultural perspectives, is recognized and supported by rural education and training programs; (6) enhancing community involvement in and support for rural education and training; and (7) providing appropriate resources for all rural education and training programs. Each priority is accompanied by lists of strategies for reaching the objective and evaluation criteria for determining that the goal has been achieved. A glossary of terms is included. (SV)
