Children in rural and remote Australia experience a 'tyranny of distance'
Australian children in regional areas experience a 'tyranny of distance' from major cities, seen in somewhat poorer learning outcomes for children living in these areas, according to a research report released today by the Australian Institute of Family Studies.
AIFS research report: This research report investigates whether the gaps in children's development in regional areas compared to children living in the major cities is explained by their distance from the major cities (remoteness), or is it because many regional areas are disadvantaged compared to the cities?
