Education for all

Every Victorian child deserves the best start in life. That’s why the Victorian Government is building the Education State, so every community has great local schools and every student is able to achieve their potential.

This year, the Victorian Budget 2017/18 commits another $1.3 billion to make sure we have the best teachers in our classrooms, the best facilities in our schools and that every child gets the support they need.
