2018 should have been a year of celebration for our schools. The start of the biggest investment in schools in decades. Needs-based funding started in 2014 after the independent “Gonski review” warned too many children were missing out due to lack of resources. These reforms were delivering:

  • Smaller class sizes.

  • More specialist teachers in areas such as literacy and numeracy.

  • More help for students with disabilities or behavioural problems.

  • And those in danger of dropping out.
