MALCOLM TURNBULL CAUGHT LYING TO PARENTS ABOUT DISABILITY FUNDING FOR SCHOOLS

The truth is that Malcolm Turnbull is cutting millions of dollars from Tasmanian students with a disability.  He should stop lying to parents.

The Liberals are abandoning students with a disability in Tasmania – it’s a disgrace.
