Gonski funding for your school

June 28, 2013

Gonksi would deliver fairer, more consistent funding arrangements, and help ensure all schools have the resources they need to educate each student to a high standard, provide more one-on-one attention, and build stronger school-family-community partnerships.

Many key school stakeholders by way of a broad alliance co-signed an open letter to Premier Napthine, calling on the Premier to sign up to Gonski.
