The Children Of The Clarence and Gonski.
Imagine the extra opportunities and help for your child the money below will generate in your local school. Ask at your local school, ask your friends. Imagine!
This is over a six year period with two-thirds of the money coming in the last two years. Under this agreement the NSW Government cannot cut education funding (remember the $1.7 Billion cut from public schools last year).
A very clever and astute Mr Abbott announced he will stick by Gonski for four years. Our public schools would then only receive one-third of the funding below and as part of his deal the State Governments are not required to stop education cuts.
What do you want for your child? The full amount and the opportunities it will produce for your children, grandchildren or one-third.
The Gonski Van is coming to Maclean on Tuesday 20th August. Look for it in the main street, stop, read the information and have a chat. Maybe even sign a petition.
Now see how much your child’s school, your grandchildren’s school is getting extra with Gonski and imagine! It can only be good.
