Hands off our state school funding, Mr Turnbull!

Malcolm Turnbull has threatened to turn his back on funding state schools this federal election year.

Based on the cuts made in last year’s horror federal budget, Malcolm Turnbull is already short-changing Victorian students $1.1 billion over 2018 and 2019 by cutting crucial needs-based funding from the Federal Education Budget.

This massive funding cut will hurt students and schools right here in our region.

A Shorten Labor Government will honour the final years of Gonski funding. For more info see here:

Hands off our state school funding, Mr Turnbull!

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, please don't cut the need-based funding our schools so desperately need.

This money can be used for additional teachers, psychologists, welfare workers and physiotherapists and resources that will help our students be the best they can be.

Please fund our schools equitably and give our children the education they deserve.
