It’s a worrying time for parents. The world is changing, and so is the nature of work. Preparing our kids for the jobs of the future is on every parent’s mind, and that will take good quality, accessible education. Whether you’re affected by the changes to early learning, concerned that kindy funding is only in place until the end of 2019, worried about Malcolm Turnbull’s $17 billion in cuts to schools funding, looking to vocational education, or watching closely as the recent $2.2 billion in cuts to uni funding start to take effect, there’s plenty to talk about when it comes to education.
Join your federal rep Terri Butler MP, Shadow Minister for Education Tanya Plibersek MP, and local education expert Matt Campbell, for a town hall-style meeting to talk about the future of education in Australia.
Date: Wednesday, 21st March, 6.00pm
Venue: Dominic Centre, St Martin’s Catholic Primary School
66 Broadway St, off Mayfield Road, Carina
