Better school funding for all our kids

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Michael Gilliver
PO Box 2196

Total Signatures - 398

Sponsoring Member: Annastacia Palaszczuk MP

Posting Date: 15/11/2012

Closing Date: 1/02/2013

Tabled Date: 13/02/2013

Responded By: Hon John-Paul Langbroek MP on 13/03/2013

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House:

  • The recommendations of the Gonski Review provide a once in a lifetime opportunity to improve school funding, ensuring that schools are funded based on the needs of children, whether private or public.
  • The Gillard Labor Government has committed to deliver better outcomes for all schools.
  • The Queensland LNP Government refuses to commit to contributing to this reform for better funding our schools.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to commit to contributing Queensland's fair share for an education system that funds each school based on the needs of every individual student they enrol.
