Gonski not over with yet.

Gonski funding is delivering extra resources to schools across Australia and lifting results for students.

But Malcolm Turnbull wants to axe Gonski after 2017 and shift to a funding system that is not needs-based and will leave schools $3.8 billion worse off in 2018 and 2019 alone.

The majority of extra Gonski funding is due to be delivered in those two years. Ending Gonski would hurt disadvantaged schools who would not be able to reach the resource standard they need to properly educate all their students.

Needs-based Gonski funding is crucial if we want all our children to reach their potential at school.

We need state and territory leaders and education ministers to reject the Turnbull plan to axe Gonski funding.
