Education reforms the key outcome from Qld Plan submissions

QUEENSLANDERS want a move away from "standardised factory teaching" and more tailored education models for individuals.

Premier Campbell Newman said education reforms had been among the key outcomes from submissions to The Queensland Plan.

More than 33,000 people already have contributed their ideas about where they want their state to be in 30 years' time.

But feedback for the Queensland Plan closes in two weeks so contributions can be collated ahead of a summit in Brisbane in October.

Mr Newman said a lot of Queenslanders felt a more personalised approach to education would ensure what students learned in school was relevant to their future.

"Other priorities identified include a need to increase involvement in our local communities through volunteering and overhauling the economy to decrease Queensland's reliance on the resources sector," he said.
