The Liberals are cutting almost $37 million from schools in our local community.
Rankin is facing a cut of $18.3 million over the next two years, while next door in Forde, $18.6 million will be cut.
Across Queensland, the Liberals will spend $458 million less in 2018 and 2019 than would have been invested by Labor over the same period.
All up, the Liberals are cutting $17 billion in funding earmarked for schools over the next decade.
These cuts mean less one-on-one attention for students, and less help with basics like reading, writing and maths.
Scott Morrison and his Liberals can’t seem to find $17 billion to properly fund our schools, but they were able to find $17 billion to give the big banks a tax handout – their priorities are all wrong.
