Wakeling: Daniel Andrews Turns His Back on Gonski

26 March 2015


Daniel Andrews turns his back on Gonski

It’s no wonder education groups are taking out full page adverts against Daniel Andrews demanding action on Gonski education funding.

Victorian families will be rightly concerned to learn that Mr Andrews has now walked away from the Gonski funding deal for Victorian schools.  The previous Coalition Government negotiated the agreement with the former federal government. Under this deal, the Victorian Government committed to invest significant funds into Victorian schools over a full six-year period.
But Daniel Andrews has now walked away from this agreement.  He’s only agreeing to four years and is fudging on the rest.

He’s short-changing schools and families.  I think your average school student can see through what Daniel Andrews is trying to spin.
