MALCOLM TURNBULL CUTS MORE THAN $20 MILLION FROM SCHOOLS IN MALLEE

Speaking in the Parliament today, Malcolm Turnbull was caught out trying to hide the fact he is cutting more than $20 million from schools in Mallee.

During Question Time, Mr Turnbull claimed that schools in Mallee were getting a funding increase.

But official data from the Victorian Government shows that more than 80 local public schools in Mallee will lose funding under Mr Turnbull’s new schools policy.

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?

The Nationals’ Member for Mallee, Andrew Broad, is refusing to stand up against these damaging school cuts. Does he not know, or does he not care that his local schools are losing funding?

You can’t trust the Liberals on schools.

Labor has announced we will restore the $22 billion Malcolm Turnbull has cut from schools.

That’s because we believe every child, in every classroom, deserves every opportunity.

We want better schools, better results, and better support for our great teachers.
