Education

Education is central to a caring and prosperous society. It must be funded from early childhood, through to tertiary and lifelong learning. Adam and the Greens believe that access to education should not depend on how much you can pay or where you live.

Education is opportunity, for people and the nation. It is central to a caring and prosperous society. It must be funded from early childhood, through to tertiary and lifelong learning.

Better Schools program

The Greens believe that access to education should not depend on how much you can pay or where you live. This is why we backed the Gonksi school education reforms and continue to fight for them, which will fund schools on the basis of need.

With a proper mining tax, the Greens will boost school funding sooner than Labor or the Coalition. The Greens will also keep pushing for dedicated investment in science and maths education, as well as Asian languages.

Stop Labor and the Coalition's uni cuts

After years of neglect under successive governments, universities are under pressure and desperately need a funding boost. The Greens would reverse Labor's cuts to universities and students, lift university base funding by 10% and raise Youth Allowance by $50. The Greens have fought and beaten each and every of the Coalition's attempts to rip more funding out of our universities and to increase student fees by deregulating universities.

Save TAFE

The Greens would boost TAFE funding by $1.2 billion, to counteract savage Liberal cuts.
