Labor’s return to its own policy of fully funding the Gonski reforms are a welcome development, Australian Greens spokesperson for schools Nick McKim says.
“After starting to waver, Labor’s announcement backing the crucial years five and six of Gonski is a welcome return to common sense,” Senator McKim said.
“The Greens have consistently backed the full six years of Gonski funding as a necessary investment into our future, and could never understand Labor hedging its commitment for so long.”
“The Liberals should be ashamed of their broken promises on school funding and wilful wrecking of agreements signed during the last term of government.”
“We will have more to say on our schools policy in the near future.”
