Public Education Day 2023

Public Education Day 2023

Calling all public school alumni! This year for Public Education Day we want to know why you are #ProudToBePublic 

The millions of us who attended public school know first-hand the positive impact it had on our lives. 

Australia’s public education system has few equals across the world. It provides hope, opportunity and purpose - no matter who you are or where you are from.  

However, right now there is deep inequality in school funding with 1 in 10 public school students being unfunded. 

Across the nation, public schools have been denied the full funding that teachers need to educate their students 

We need your help. 

On Public Education Day we want to celebrate Australia’s public schools and call on the Federal Government to fully fund them by providing 100% of the Schooling Resource Standard (SRS). 

Post on twitter with the hashtag #ProudToBePublic to show your public school pride and help win fair and proper funding for Australia’s students.
