To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in the Parliament assembled.

This petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that:

1. The education funding cuts released in the 1986 Federal Budget will severely affect the standard of education in South Australia.

2. Computer education will suffer at a time when computers and technology have a high priority in our schools and the work force.

3. There will be reduced advisory services and resources in areas in which a large number of beginning teachers and staff in their first promotion position are employed.

4. There will be no improvement in class sizes.

5. Existing subject choices for students will not be guaranteed.

Your petitioners therefore pray that your Honourable House will restore all Federal education funding to the levels of funding existing prior to the 1986 Budget.

Your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
