Terrigal High School, a terrific public school on the NSW Central Coast, is getting a visit from Malcolm Turnbull’s education minister today.

Will he explain why he’s cutting Terrigal High’s funding by up to $588K, while he’s giving elite Sydney private schools huge multimillion dollar increases?

Malcolm Turnbull visited an elite $22K a year Sydney private school on Friday to celebrate the fact he’s giving them an extra $19 million.

Guess where Mr Turnbull’s education minister is today? In Western Australia, bragging about the fact he’s giving an elite $24K a year private school in Perth an extra $16 million.

At the same time as the Liberals are giving more to wealthy private...

The first thing Malcolm Turnbull did yesterday, after ramming his schools policy through Parliament, was visit an elite private school in Sydney.

This elite private school charges $22,000 in fees, and has terrific facilities. It gets a $19 million funding increase from Malcolm Turnbull.

Meanwhile, the public high school down the road gets a $1 million cut.

That’s completely unfair.

The Liberals’ new schools policy: less funding for public schools, more for elite private schools.

It’s completely unfair.

Every school, and every student, deserves a great education.

That’s what Labor will fight for, every single day, between now and the next election.

Parents and schools hate Malcolm Turnbull’s schools policy, Liberal MPs and Senators don’t understand it, and information about its devastating impact is being kept secret.

It’s time for Malcolm Turnbull to go back to the drawing board.

Malcolm Turnbull should start telling parents and teachers the truth.

The truth is that Mr Turnbull's policy slashes funding for public schools while many elite private schools get multimillion dollar increases.

That’s not fair, and it’s not needs-based.

Bill Shorten MP and I are proud that since the last election, in the Federal Parliament, the percentage of Labor parliamentarians who are women has increased to 45.3%.

Labor has more women on our front bench than the Liberal Party has in the entire House of Representatives.

Since 2015, there are 19 more Labor women in parliaments across Australia, while the number of Liberal Party women...

Public investment should strengthen our TAFE system, not prop up dodgy providers.

Labor will reverse Malcolm Turnbull's $637m cuts, guarantee two thirds of public funding goes to TAFE and invest in re-opening region campuses. #nationalTAFEday

Malcolm Turnbull’s schools funding policy is not fair, it’s not sector blind, and it’s not needs-based.

How can Mr Turnbull's policy be fair when public schools lose hundreds of millions of dollars while many elite private schools get millions of dollars extra?

Malcolm Turnbull’s schools funding policy is not fair, it’s not sector blind, and it’s not needs-based.

How can it be when NSW public schools lose around $850 million, while a private school like King’s in Sydney gets a $19 million increase?

You just can’t trust the Liberals with our schools.

Some commentators like to say Labor believes in redistribution but not growth.

Inevitably, they talk about growing pies and cutting them up.
This misunderstands our position.

For Labor, fairer distribution is part of our growth strategy.

Full employment, decent pay and conditions, money in your pocket and the confidence to spend it – these aren’t nostalgic throwbacks they are necessary...

Next year, the number of students with a disability that need support will jump by around 100 per cent. But Malcolm Turnbull is only increasing funding by a tiny 3.1 per cent. This is extremely concerning.

On average, that means under Mr Turnbull’s policy, support for students with a disability will plummet by around 50 per cent per student.
