Students across Bennelong are set for an average boost of around $2,125 each under the Turnbull Government’s Gonski funding plan.
That’s an extra $19.7 million we’re delivering for Bennelong schools. There are no cuts.
The figures being peddled by the NSW Teachers’ Federation are a desperate attempt to push for an unfunded Labor promise we clearly rejected four years ago.
The NSW Teachers’ Federation are comparing future funding growth to what Labor promised they’d deliver but never budgeted.
If the NSW Teachers’ Federation thinks an extra $19.7 million for Bennelong schools over the next decade is a “cut”, then they clearly need to go back to school.
Bill Shorten and the Labor Party should be apologising to the voters of Bennelong that they voted against our $19.7 million increase when the legislation went through Parliament in June.
Our funding growth means there’s no reason schools won’t be able to continue to support teachers and new or existing initiatives, such as specialist teachers or targeted intervention programs.
We’re delivering the real ‘Gonski’ needs-based funding model that Labor didn’t. The Turnbull Government is delivering the real, needs-based, sector blind funding system that David Gonski and his panel of experts envisaged.
Our plan is about giving all Australian schools a fair go and wiping away the 27 special deals Labor signed up that trashed the recommendations of David Gonski and his panel of experts.
