Online forum: Fully funded and genuinely free state schools

Join me for an online town hall meeting about the inquiry and to hear how you can help push for fully funded state schools in Queensland. 

State schools are meant to be free, but right now, Queensland parents are having to spend thousands of dollars in fees and resource costs every year. This is because the state government has let our schools become some of the most underfunded in the country.

Funding for Queensland state schools is falling short by $1.7 billion every year. This means fewer teachers, fewer resources for kids and more out-of-pocket expenses for families

Right now, we have an opportunity to change this. The school funding agreement between the state and federal governments is about to be re-negotiated. 

Now’s a critical time to push Labor to make sure our state schools are fully funded and genuinely free. I recently introduced a bill into Queensland Parliament that would make the Education Minister commit to fully funding our state schools by 2035 and scrapping out-of-pocket costs for parents.

This has kickstarted a parliamentary inquiry into school funding, right at this critical time, which you can be a part of too.

RSVP here and we'll send out the Zoom link to you via email before the forum.
