Education Minister meets M'boro teachers and apprentices

EDUCATION Minister John-Paul Langbroek has spoken about the link between education and social issues such as drug use while meeting with Maryborough teachers and apprentices.

Mr Langbroek took questions from training providers on Wednesday in a breakfast hosted by Maryborough MP Anne Maddern.

He said schools were increasingly being looked at to take on programs addressing social services to help problems such as Wide Bay's high number of under-employed, housing shortages and divided families.

Mr Langbroek also visited with first-year apprentices at Wide Bay Institute of TAFE in Maryborough, where he spoke on a state-funded literacy and numeracy program for trainees and apprentices.
