MORRISON HAS GONE MISSING

FOR STATE SCHOOLS.

Morrison's failure to fund state schools properly means every student in the Longman electorate is missing out on $2,162 of school funding every year.

FROM STATE SCHOOLS
Australia prides itself on being a nation that provides opportunity for all, yet under the Morrison Government, students in state schools are denied the critical funding they need to succeed.

State schools have not received any federal capital works funding for buildings or equipment since 2017, despite the urgent need for high quality learning areas and new classrooms. 99% of state schools do not have the minimum standard of funding their students need because the Morrison Government has capped federal funding for state schools at 20%, while private schools receive 80%.

In fact, state schools across Australia are already underfunded by a minimum of $6.7 billion every year to 2023.

LONGMAN ELECTORATE

If state schools in the Longman electorate were properly and fairly funded 19 additional teachers, on average, could be employed in every school and additional learning programs could be provided for students who need extra help.

With more teachers, education support staff, smaller classes, high quality learning facilities and proper funding for state schools, every child in Longman can thrive and achieve their dreams.

#MorrisonMustGo

19 ADDITIONAL TEACHERS

THE SOLUTION - THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MUST:

Fund state schools to a minimum of 100 per cent of the Schooling Resource Standard.
Create a dedicated capital works fund to meet the need of increased state school enrolments.
Ensure students with disability receive additional funding to meet their educational needs.
Proper and fair funding would make the world of difference for state schools – new high-quality classrooms and improved school facilities and equipment, more teachers and support staff, smaller classes and additional learning programs to give every child the opportunity for a bright future.

BUT TO ACHIEVE THAT, WE MUST VOTE TO CHANGE THE GOVERNMENT
