Gonski Reforms – A Boost for WA Education?

Thursday 13th June / presented by James Hall

Education is key to a functioning society. We all understand this. But the question of how best to deliver it is a big one, and one that’s been on everyone’s lips in recent times with the deliverance of the Gonski reforms.

WA Premier Colin Barnett has thus far refused to sign up to the reforms in WA claiming that the deal did not serve WA properly.

Cue Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s decision to award WA a further 620 million dollars after a revision of its education needs.

Will the deal secure Barnett’s signature? And if it does, where will that money go?

Anne Gisborne from the State School Teachers Union of WA joined James Hall on Morning Magazine.
