Tony Abbott’s Liberal National Party cuts to education are a broken promise to the families of the North Coast.
During the election the Liberal National Party had promised to match Labor when it came to school funding.
This is an outrageous breach of the trust of the North Coast families.
It proves that during the election campaign the National Party candidates lied to local parents.
No wonder the Nationals have gone into hiding on the North Coast – they can’t be trusted.
Since announcing they were walking away from their promised school funding model, Tony Abbott has refused to guarantee that no school will be worse off.
Parents on the North Coast are rightly frightened about what this will mean for their kids.
Along with local parents I will fight the Liberal National Party’s broken promise.
