MALCOLM TURNBULL CUTS FUNDING FOR SCHOOLS IN GILMORE
Speaking in the Parliament today, the Prime Minister was caught out trying to hide the fact he is cutting more than $19 million from schools in Gilmore.
During Question Time, the Prime Minister couldn’t answer how much funding he was cutting from Nowra East Public School. Later he tried to claim it was getting an increase.
Official data from the NSW Government shows that over the next two years alone Nowra East Public School will lose more than $1.3 million because of Malcolm Turnbull’s cuts.
Mr Turnbull is using school funding numbers that have been deliberately designed to disguise his cuts.
Even the Liberal state government in NSW has warned principals the school funding figures Malcolm Turnbull is publishing cannot be trusted.
Parents, teachers, and schools deserve the truth.
Malcolm Turnbull is cutting $22 billion from schools to pay for his $65 billion big business tax cut.
What kind of Prime Minister rips money off schoolkids to give it to multinationals?
You can’t trust the Liberals on schools.
