 MALCOLM TURNBULL'S DODGY SCHOOLS FUNDING CALCULATOR EXPOSED

Malcolm Turnbull has been busted using dodgy numbers on his online schools funding calculator in an attempt to hide massive cuts from parents and teachers.

At a Senate committee hearing yesterday, it was revealed there are 2017 funding figures on the Liberals’ online calculator that are not true representations of the money allocated to schools for the year.

It appears the online calculator includes funding figures for some schools that are wrong by more than a million dollars.

Mr Turnbull is right to be ashamed of his $22 billion of cuts to schools, but he should not be deliberately misleading parents and teachers by using dodgy numbers.

If Mr Turnbull refuses to use accurate funding numbers for each school on his online calculator, he should take it down.

You just can't trust the Liberals with our schools.
