Voters prefer Gonski to ‘out of touch’ Turnbull’s company tax cuts

May 04, 2017

Voters want next week’s federal Budget to fund Gonski in full rather than see Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull gifting business with tax cuts, the Australian Education Union (AEU) said today, citing a new survey of 20 marginal seats.

The polling, which shows 71 per cent of respondents see Mr Turnbull as being out of touch with their concerns, reinforces the AEU’s condemnation of the federal government’s announcement this week to leave schools $2 billion worse off in 2018-19 by not funding Gonski in full. Voters strongly supported increasing resources for schools.
