    Well I always knew I would be able to say, "I told you so!" but just didn't realise it would be less than 3 months after the election.

    I'm really concerned what is going to happen to the funding promised to rural and low socio economic status schools. No doubt this 'reallocation' will involve a lot less money.

    Investment in education is a wise decision, both financially and socially. But I guess many lib voters send their kids to private schools so who cares right?

    I think the LNP's 'change of mind' on Gonski is particularly indicative of the sh1te gov't that we currently have in power.

    Let's refresh...

    And now...
    Just two days ago, the Federal Minister for Education, Christopher Pyne, performed a brazen policy back-flip on school funding, saying he would no longer accept Labor's funding and overall model despite Tony Abbott making this pre-election promise: “We will honour the agreements that Labor has entered into. We will match the offers that Labor has made. We will make sure that no school is worse off.”
    There's a bunch of men in suits in Canberra with their pants on fire.

    The thing is, Pyne says that the policy is a shambles. Shouldn't he have read it before adopting it as policy before the election?

    Yes, he should have read it before agreeing to it but on what basis does he bleive the policy to be a shambles? It wouldn't be because it's an ALP policy and he has to discredit it somehow and make some sort of excuse not to follow through with it would he?
