Education and school funding is the number one topic raised with me. We want the best for our kids. I’m proud that Labor is committed to education and has announced policies which deliver on this promise:
- Schools: Labor will deliver an $18 million funding boost for public schools in our electorate. Every public school student in Cooper will be better off under Labor’s plan. To find out how much extra funding your school will receive under Labor click here.
- TAFE: Labor will rebuild TAFE, waiving upfront fees for 100,000 TAFE students around Australia, and providing 10,000 pre-apprenticeships for young people who want to learn a trade.
- Kinder: I will deliver at least two days of subsidised kinder to 4000 three and four year olds in Cooper, as part of our commitment to kinder for all kids in Australia.
- University: Labor will provide an extra 200,000 students with a place at University. Having a degree from LaTrobe University enhanced my career path so I’m thrilled thousands more Australians will get this opportunity.
