Better schools will give our children the best start in life so they can get high skilled, high paid jobs in the future. The Gillard Labor Government has a proud record of improving our schools. Now we’re building on that with our Nation Plan for School Improvement.
Meanwhile the NSW Liberals have announced they will cut $1.7 billion from all NSW schools – Public, Independent and Catholic.
These cuts will affect every school and every student and will mean:
- Larger class sizes
- Less teachers, with over 1800 jobs already cut
- Less computers and textbooks for students, and
- An increase in TAFE fees by up to 10 per cent.
I need your help to fight these cuts.
What you can do to help:
This is important - education is the cornerstone of a strong Australia. We can’t let the NSW Liberal Government threaten the future of our children.
