Michael Keating, Editor-in-Chief of Inside Canberra asks the Minister for Education and Training a question about a comment by South Australian Education Minister Susan Close. Ms Close commented on Facebook with the following. Hi Mario, four years ago we started a six year arrangement to increase school funding to a level students needed. Unfortunately the Hockey budget ended this agreement and we won’t get the $335 million needed in the last two years. Minister Birmingham is suggesting that we will probably get about $70 million instead. We’re still working through the detail, but it’s obviously not enough money for SA schools to give students the resources they need.
