Western Sydney Federal MPs Condemn NSW School Funding Cuts

Western Sydney Federal Labor MPs condemn the reported funding cuts to NSW Catholic and Independent schools by Premier Barry O’Farrell and the NSW Liberal State Government.

This is an attack on education in Western Sydney, an area of high growth and strong need. We strongly oppose any measure that will result in less funding for local schools.

These cuts have the potential to lead to increased school fees for parents, larger class sizes and the loss of teaching jobs. We believe education is the great enabler and we value the important role that Catholic and Independent schools play in our community.

We are united in our opposition to these cuts and are committed to improving all schools as outlined in the Gonski Recommendations.
