Taking a while but truth will tell!

New data on Gonski 2.0 short changing kids is revealed. This is about getting the funding RIGHT! 
The extract below is from The Guardian

The Turnbull government school plan cuts $1.2bn over 10 years from schools compared with regular increases in current legislation, according to a parliamentary budget office costing prepared for Senator David Leyonhjelm.

The costing has reportedly prompted Leyonhjelm, a small-government libertarian, to reconsider his opposition to the Gonski 2.0 school funding plan but could spell trouble for the government among crossbench parties who have argued for more funding for needy schools.

According to the government, Gonski 2.0 increases funding by $18bn over 10 years) compared with current levels, while Labor focuses on the fact it is a $22bn cut relative to funding promised in needs-based funding agreements with the states.


And yes Mathew Knott ( Fairfax) teachers are still fighting for Gonski ( teachers, not the union) and will continue to fight for it until it is delivered in full!
