To the honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament:

The Petition of certain citizens of Australia undersigned draws to the attention of the House:

A well funded Public Education system is vital to the maintenance of a fair and democratic Australian society.

We need our public schools to be well resourced.

This requires the Federal Government to provide a fairer model for funding Australian schools.

Your petitioners therefore ask the House to:

Ensure that the funding policies of the Commonwealth Government are reformed to provide increased and fairer funding for public schools.

by Mr Pyne (from 17 citizens)
