Labor Win

Impressive wins for Sharon Knight ( below) and Geoff Howard in tonight's state election. They have both achieved solid swings and have won their respective seats of Wendouree and Bunninyong comfortably. 
The new government made many promises about public education in opposition and in the election campaign and they will need to work hard to achieve those promises which included restoring and improving TAFE, building new technical schools, restoring funding for important school services, helping schools to support disadvantaged students and de-merging our unworkable regions.
I also expect them to address inequality between rural and metropolitan students.( Interesting to note the very poor performance of the National Party in the election.It might have something to do with them doing nothing for country people over the last four years? Also predictable to hear David Davis union bashing and sprouting delusional claptrap! on the other hand it was good to hear the new Premier, Daniel Andrews say that Victoria will now be the education state!)
