School Funding

I believe passionately that greater investment in Braddon schools will contribute to a stronger, more productive nation where young people can achieve their potential regardless of their postcode or parents’ income.

It seems that the Liberal Government disagree.

Malcolm Turnbull plans to end needs-based Gonski funding after 2017, and axe almost $70 million in funding from Tasmanian schools.

To save Gonski both state and federal governments need to work together to make sure the Turnbull plan is rejected.
