Country kids and Gonski

teaching_moment.jpgCountry kids have been the big winners so far under the Gonski school funding arrangements.

The needs-based funding, which started in 2014, is being used by schools in ways that make a real difference:

  • Reducing class sizes

  • Providing individual support for kids struggling with literacy and numeracy

  • Improving the training of teachers

  • Providing more specialist support like speech pathologists

Read some great examples of how schools are using the funding to lift student results here.

The funding needs to be delivered in full to ensure country schools are properly resourced.

But Malcolm Turnbull wants to stop this funding after this year, leaving country schools millions short of the resources needed to properly educate all kids.
