The greatest investment Australia can make is in its people: Cities that invest in their people through education create social cohesion, innovation, positive communities and strong forward thinking economies.

Education: I propose we promote equitable, accessible education, fair funding for all schools, affordable early childcare and restoring funding to universities and TAFE to invest in the future skills that Australia needs. I will not support the deregulation of university fees.

I propose we support the Australian Government funding of schools and the higher education system, including the Gonksi reforms.
