‘Do Your Block’ for fair public school funding
13 November 2018
The Fair Funding Now! community will be out in their local neighbourhoods throughout Australia this weekend raising awareness of fair funding for public schools.
Meet-up events have been organised in key target federal election seats, while outside those areas supporters have ordered flyers or printed their own flyer at home, to be delivered during our “Do Your Block” weekend on 17/18 November.
There has been a significant response to the event, with hundreds of people offering to deliver tens of thousands of flyers to all corners of Australia.
With the upcoming federal election looming, it’s more important than ever to get the word out to parents, neighbours and about what fair public school funding would mean for their children.The flyer has important information about Labor’s promise to invest an additional $14.1 billion into public schools over the next decade and what that means for each State and Territory between 2020-2022.In target seats customised flyers with school-by-school information have been printed.
This school-by-school information is vital for parents, teachers and voters so they can make an informed choice about who will properly fund our public schools.
