Abstract

This study investigates whether teachers in rural and remote regions are disadvantaged in ways that could potentially affect their teaching careers in negative ways, in particular in terms of professional development (PD) and career advancement (CA)opportunities. Such opportunities are crucial if teachers are to provide an education of high relevance to rurally remote children.
