Ryan urges Napthine Government to support local schools
Joanne Ryan, has written to Victorian Premier Denis Napthine urging the Victorian Liberal Government to come to the party and provide much needed funding to Lalor Schools.
The Federal Labor Government invested heavily to provide capital funding to local schools under the Building the Education Revolution program, but unfortunately more funding is needed.
“Wyndham is a high growth area and as predicted, has reached a milestone 200,000 residents in July this year. This growth will continue with an average of 80 babies born locally each week.
“This high growth makes infrastructure spending on schools, both new and existing, critical for the region’s future.
“While Federal Labor invested heavily in education across our region, we have seen our local schools now neglected by State and Federal Liberal Government’s,” Federal Member for Lalor Joanne Ryan said.
“This capital funding, combined with well-targeted support for disadvantaged and Non-English Speaking Background (NESB) students is so important for the education outcomes of our community.
“The Victorian Government needs to support the local school communities who have been sorely neglected over the past three years in recurrent, capital and maintenance expenditure. Many of our aging schools are in desperate need of funding to upgrade facilities to a standard acceptable for our students.
The increased need of funding for local schools is exasperated by the Abbott Government’s failure to guarantee that no school will be worse off as part of their election cuts.
