HOW MANY MORE BILLIONS WILL SCOTT MORRISON RIP FROM PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO GIVE TO THE TOP END OF TOWN? 

The Liberals must come clean about how much they will cut from Australian schools to pay for their big tax loopholes for the top end of town. 

It was revealed today that Scott Morrison will have to cut $40 billion a year to pay for his tax loopholes for the top end of town.  

That’s almost double what the Federal Government spends each year on schools. 

The cuts to pay for the Liberals’ tax loopholes for the top end of town will come on top of the $14 billion Scott Morrison’s already ripped from schools.   

Scott Morrison’s school cuts mean our kids will be left behind - with less one on one attention; less help with the basics; and less subject choice. 

The Liberals cut public school funding every chance they get. 

On the eve of the 2013 election Tony Abbott promised no cuts to education.  He lied. 

Now Scott Morrison wants to cut even more from schools to pay for cash handouts to the top end of town. 

If Australia wants a government that puts schools before bigger tax loopholes for the top end of town, they should vote for Bill Shorten and Labor. 

After six years of Liberal cuts and chaos, our united Labor team is ready to deliver a fair go for all Australians.
