Making Victoria the Education State
The Andrews Labor Government is making Victoria the Education State.
We have talked to thousands of Victorian teachers, principals, parents, carers and students who have told us that our schools are 'good'. The system isn't broken, but more work needs to be done. We must take our schools from good to great, and we must support the kids who need extra help.
We are continuing to make the case to the Commonwealth Government to honour its commitment to fully fund the Gonski Agreement. If the Commonwealth Government doesn't honour the final two years of this education funding agreement, Victoria's government schools will be $1.1 billion worse off.
Victoria is doing its part. We've reaffirmed our commitment to the Gonski Agreement, and provided the single biggest injection of education funding in the State's recent history.
Using funding allocated last Budget, we are investing $747 million from the start of the 2016 year to provide additional support to schools, students, principals and teachers. The Government will make further announcements, about additional investment for the 2017 school year.
