Just a few days ago, I stood with Bill Shorten outside Iramoo Primary School in Melbourne.
At Iramoo, I saw students excited for their first day at school. I saw passionate teachers working hard to make a difference in the lives of every child. I met a principal, who spoke about the difference additional support would make in every school’s classrooms.
With Labor’s positive plan for our schools, it’s not just the students at Iramoo who will be better off. Every student in every school will benefit from Labor’s plan.
Our plan — Your Child. Our Future — will mean better trained teachers, more resources for our schools and support for students with special learning needs. We will fund the Gonski school reforms in full, because there’s nothing more important a government could do than invest in our schools.
Can you stand with Labor and add your name to our petition saying you support more resources for our schools?
Every Australian child, like the excited students I saw at Iramoo, should have the same chance of succeeding at school as any other kid in the country – no matter their background, no matter where they live and no matter what type of school they go to.
With a Shorten Labor government, we would make sure that happens.
Thanks for your support,
Shadow Minister for Education
