Gonski 2017 Day of Action - 19 June

In the next two weeks, the Senate will be considering Turnbull’s plan for schools funding. We need to make sure our politicians know that WA needs the full Gonski, not the watered down Turnbull Plan.

You can register here to be part of a day of action or contact Greens Senators Scott Ludlum, Rachel Siewert or One Nation Senator Peter Georgiou on Monday 19 June and tell them why WA needs to have the full Gonski delivered to us. Contact details for all WA Senators are available here.

You can find Gonski social media graphics here to share and download Gonski fact sheets to distribute to your networks.

There is a lot of misinformation about what the Turnbull government is proposing for schools. Get the facts here. If you want to be part of the event but can’t make a call on Monday, go here.
