Education community speaks out on cuts threat

Susie Boyd, NSW Federation of Parents and Citizens Associations President: Parents across the state are really concerned that an entire generation of children is going to be underfunded.

Chris Presland, Secondary Principals’ Council President: The knowledge economy rests heavily on what happens in our schools today. If we don’t heavily invest in the schools today, then there is no medium to long-term prosperous future for this country.

Phil Seymour, NSW Primary Principals’ Association President: I work nationally with the Australian Primary Principals Association … and the NSW model — the way the funding is needs-based — is the envy of Australia.
