Further Delays in Gonski Disability Funding Not Good Enough

Media Release
Nick McKim 15 Dec 2015

More delays in disability support funding for schools are deeply disappointing, Greens Schools spokesperson Nick McKim says.

“The Liberal Government again delaying promised funding for students with disabilities is a crushing blow for parents and schools alike,” Senator McKim said.

“If the data is not up to scratch, interim arrangements should be put in place to deliver extra support in schools next year while work on the data is completed.”

“Simply denying schools the resources they need for another year demonstrates a failure of leadership by Education Minister Simon Birmingham.”
