    Abstract

    "This research intends to explore a range of issues associated with the attraction and retention of teachers to rural and remote schools and aims to suggest appropriate improvements. ... To help inform this research about the present situation around Australia, an analysis of the rural and remote area staffing policies of the various state and territory public education unions was conducted. This provides a comprehensive view of what is currently available and more importantly, the success or otherwise of these approaches. It is hoped that an analysis will provide a bank of ideas to be pursued by other public education unions as well as suggesting approaches that are to be avoided because they have been found to be unsuccessful"--p. 6.
