Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia) (16:19): I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes:

   (i) the Government's refusal to commit to the final two years of Gonski funding, which has established a funding cliff in 2018, will cut billions of dollars from Australian schools, and

   (ii) that some of the wealthiest private schools in Australia are over-funded while many public schools are struggling without adequate funding; and

(b) calls on the Turnbull Government to prioritise equality in Australian schools by committing to a genuine needsĀ­-based funding model.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: The question is that motion No. 200 under formal business listed on today's Red and moved by Senator Hanson-Young be agreed to.
