Schools: funding

Mr SOUTHWICK — The Premier yesterday announced a proposal that would not only significantly boost funding to our schools but also improve learning outcomes for all students and preserve and protect the Victorian model of empowering local school communities. The Napthine reforms put on the table an additional $3.5 billion in recurrent funding from Victoria 2013-14 to 2018-19, which will trigger a contribution of $7 billion from the federal Labor government when the 2:1 ratio is applied.

I hope the new Prime Minister will do what is best for schools, and what Julia Gillard was about to do, in working with the Victorian government to deliver these important school reforms. We need to ensure that all our schools are properly funded and that we continue to have the best schools in the country.
