Liberal National Party Leader Deb Frecklington said today's NAPLAN results show that Queensland kids are falling behind when it comes to writing.

"We have gone backwards in the last 12 months in terms of year 3, 5, 7 and 9 standards," Ms Frecklington said.

"It's not good enough for Education Minister Grace Grace to blame the test or the Federal Government.

"There are practical measures the Palaszczuk Labor Government can be doing to improve education and better support our teachers.

"The LNP has already announced plans to declutter the curriculum and get back to basics.

"We want to air-condition every state school classroom in Queensland because we know that cool kids are smart kids.

"We will continue the Independent Public Schools program to ensure our schools are run by local principals, teachers and parents.

"It's three weeks tomorrow since Grace Grace said she would release the IPS review after she had been briefed – she needs to come clean and release the secret report.

"We want our kids to be the smartest in the nation."
