Two things are clear. Firstly, opposition to Gonski needs-based funding cost the Coalition votes. Secondly, the Coalition has no mandate to end Gonski.
I don't know where the Gonski campaign goes from here but the fantastic campaign led by teacher, principals and parents has generated, and continues to fight for the needs-based funding that is vital for our students and for Australia. It is still mind-boggling that the Coalition does not see investing in schools as also investing in Australia's future.
It remains to be seen where the campaign goes from here.
