Gonski: NOW IS THE TIME TO LOBBY ALL STATES
Rob Oakshott may be a little unpredictable at times but his statement that “GONSKI’S EDUCATION REVIEW IS THE UNFINISHED BUSINESS OF THE 43rd PARLIAMENT” is worth noting.
He reminds us that with all education sectors giving the Gonski Report the thumbs up and the Commonwealth appearing to endorse it (without committing funds at this stage) now is the critical time for all concerned citizens and educators to lobby your state Government on this matter.
This may be a once-in-a-life-time opportunity
Write, email, twitter, petition your education Minister or Premier and make sure that they know that their position on this matter at the Education Ministers Forum (MCEECDYA) and at COAG is being watched. Urge them to negotiate with a commitment to an outcome that moves us forward. Let us make sure that they don’t waste this opportunity!
