LNP Leader Deb Frecklington has today pledged a Government she leads will air-condition every state school classroom in Queensland as a part of her plan to make Queensland kids the smartest and the coolest in the nation.

Ms Frecklington said Queensland kids and teachers had been suffering in hot classrooms for too long.

"Currently there are children and teachers sweltering in classrooms with no air-conditioning," Ms Frecklington said.

"Last year, Gatton hit 45.7 degrees Celsius, Dalby hit 43, Warwick hit 42.2, Toowoomba hit 40.8 and in January Brisbane's maximum temperature was 37.5 degrees.

"How can children possibly learn and how can teachers teach in these conditions.

"This is why, as a part of our education plan, we will air-condition every classroom in Queensland so our children have the best possible chance at learning.

"This is all part of our plan to make Queensland kids the smartest in the nation.

"Cool kids are smart kids."

Ms Frecklington said the Palaszczuk Labor Government had no plan to air condition classrooms across the whole state.

"Last year we had the hottest year on record across Queensland with many communities in Southeast Queensland recording their highest temperatures ever," Ms Frecklington said.

"This is why I will deliver air-conditioning to classrooms in every state school in Queensland so our children have the best chance to learn.

"Our plan to air condition classrooms will lead to better student results and a more comfortable working environment for our teachers, teacher aides and Principals."

LNP Shadow Education Minister Jarrod Bleijie said Labor were all talk and no action when it comes to investing in education.

"Labor's only plan is taxes, debt and unemployment," Mr Bleijie said.

"Kids are being sent home with heat exhaustion and yet Labor are turning a blind eye to this problem.

"In 2017, 13 out of 20 NAPLAN rankings went backwards and it is no wonder kids are struggling to learn when some days their classrooms are over 35 degrees.

"Schools will be cool under the LNP's plan.

"We want our kids to be the smartest in the nation, as well as the coolest."
