Today, 36 Prominent Australians call for urgent action on Gonski reforms.

Education is a right.

In Australia, students with disability are half as likely to complete Year 12 as their peers. That sucks.

Today, Stephanie Gotlib, Executive Officer of Children with Disability Australia (CDA) stood alongside 35 other prominent Australians as a signatory to an open letter to the Prime Minister and State and Territory leaders demanding that action be taken urgently to bring into effect the recommendations made by Mr David Gonski and his team in early 2012. It might cost a bit, but it will cost our country a whole lot more if we don’t.
