Election on Saturday

This Saturday, Australians have a chance to change the direction of their nation. Whether led by Abbott, Turnbull or Morrison, this is a federal Liberal government that has failed to tackle the most important issues facing this nation, including climate change, wage rises, job security and growing inequity that makes life so much harder for too many.

Crucially for state teachers and principals, this is a government that has failed Australian public schools — cutting $14 billion in much-needed funding from the schools that educate the majority of our children and young people (see the first item below).

State teachers have spent more than a decade campaigning for Fair Funding Now!  Let's vote for fair schools funding, for three and four-year-old preschool, for proper funding of public TAFE and apprenticeships.

The federal election result will be critical in this regard as the Labor opposition has committed to a review of NAPLAN.

Let’s vote for public education. Let's vote to change the government.
