Oh. My. God. My jaw just dropped to the floor.
Just checking my email and a few people have sent me an email that they’d received from Christopher Pyne. I reproduce for you this jaw-dropping email (below). Brace yourselves.
Today, the Coalition Government secured a national agreement on school funding.
This agreement fulfils the commitment we made to parents and schools before the election.
The Coalition Government has restored the $1.2 billion that Labor ripped out of schools funding – and this brings total additional school funding over the next four years to $2.8 billion.
No state or territory misses out.
That’s good news for schools, parents and students in Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory which did not have agreements with the previous government.
Labor and the former Education Minister, Bill Shorten left school funding in a mess.
The hurried agreements signed in the dying days of the Gillard-Rudd Government meant some states secured additional funding, while others didn’t.
Our announcement ensures that every student in Australia is treated exactly the same way by the Commonwealth regardless of what jurisdiction they live in.
We have kept our commitments on school funding and delivered more funding over the next four years than promised by Labor.
As parents approach the Christmas school holidays, they can be confident that the Coalition Government will always support their choice in education – and that whatever choice they do make, they will be properly funded.
Minister for Education
I ask you, have you ever read so much utter bullshit in your life?
Can you pick the lies?
