Today is Public Education Day.

Malcolm Turnbull’s $22 billion of cuts hit public schools hard.

And while New South Wales public schools lose about $850 million, The King’s School gets $19 million extra.

How is that fair?

Some women will face an effective marginal tax rate of more 100% because of the Budget – creating a penalty for women who increase their participation in the workforce.

The Minister for Women’s office didn’t know this because they didn’t even ask Treasury what impact the Government’s Budget would have on women.

This is why we need gender-aware budgeting.

Malcolm Turnbull was happy for his office to give journalists a briefing document that says this about his schools funding policy: ‘compared to Labor's [schools funding] arrangements this represents a savings of $22.3 billion over ten years.”

But Mr Turnbull repeatedly refused to say the number in the Parliament today.

What sort of society would we be if we take funding away from a proper education for our school children and give that money to multinational companies and millionaires as a tax cut?

This is not just robbing individual children who miss out, it is robbing our nation of the full value of the gifts and talents of every Australian child.

Malcolm Turnbull is making things worse for women, with a Budget that delivers effective marginal tax rates of 100 per cent. That is a huge disincentive for some women to increase their participation in the workforce.

The Liberals want to keep this kind of information secret.

Malcolm Turnbull's policy cuts funding for thousands of public schools and Catholic parish schools.

But The King's School and the Sydney Church of England Grammar School get millions of dollars in extra funding.

How is that fair?

Data released today shows every public school in South Australia will get huge funding cuts thanks to a new policy announced by Malcolm Turnbull.

Around $265 million will be cut over the next two years alone.

This further exposes Malcolm Turnbull’s new school funding policy for what it really is – a massive $22 billion cut, over the decade.

Budgets matter, and they matter for women. Australian women’s economic security; their safety; and access to health and education – all of these are dramatically affected by the choices governments make.

Visiting northern Tasmania to talk about Malcolm Turnbull's $22 billion of cuts to schools.

Tasmanian schools will lose around $85 million in the next two years alone. About $68 million of that will be ripped from public schools.

What kind of Prime Minister takes money off schoolkids to give it to multinationals?

Whatever way you look at it the Liberals are cutting $22 billion from schools, and I would be shocked if the Greens supported them.

The cuts will hit public schools the hardest.

Labor's plan means 80% of extra federal funding goes to public schools.

The Liberals want to give the majority of extra federal funding to private schools - that's not fairer.

Data's been released in NSW and...

Last night, Labor announced we will restore every single dollar of the $22 billion the Liberals have cut from schools.

That’s because we believe every child, in every classroom, deserves every opportunity.

We want better schools, better results, and better support for our great teachers.
