NEW LEADER, SAME SCHOOL CUTS

Malcom Turnbull has locked-in Tony Abbott’s $30 billion cut to schools, today’s Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO) confirms.

This includes cuts to the vital fifth and sixth years of the Gonski reforms.

“Malcolm Turnbull is no different to Tony Abbott on school funding,” Shadow Education Minister, Kate Ellis said.

“Students will miss out on the individual support they need to achieve their best. They will miss out on literacy and numeracy programs; sport and music; and speech pathology.

“Malcolm Turnbull talks an awful lot about the importance of being smart and innovative, but he has failed to put his money where his mouth is.

“The Liberals’ policy of linking school funding to CPI from 2018 has now been confirmed by two leaders, two budgets and two MYEFOs.”
