A change of government will mean $23.5 million extra for state schools in the Herbert electorate between 2020-2022.

See what this means for your school below


Scott Morrison’s idea of a fair go is to cut $14 billion from state schools and hand billions extra to wealthy private schools. He has turned his back on kids in state schools. His plan will leave 99 per cent of state schools below a national resource standard and 99 per cent of private schools at that standard or above it.

These cuts hit hardest the kids who need our help the most. When you cut public school funding you cut funding for students with disability, you cut funding for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, you cut funding for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, you cut funding for students at risk of falling behind.

As the alternative government, Labor has pledged to reverse these cuts and stop kids missing out. It will make funding fairer and ensure children in state schools are given more support to achieve at a higher level and fulfil their potential. We need a government prepared to invest in our kids in state schools, not make it harder for them.
