If you cut the resources to something, the productivity and quality can only suffer.
No, we cannot afford to cut spending on education. The lengths this government will go in order to return the budget to surplus in record time is ridiculous. Bring back Labour.

As far as I'm concerned, the people don't appear to be doing so well under the Liberals.

The country does prosper under Labor. And, even if it didn't, the kids are bound to get a little bit of something out of an education.
As far as the country prospering, I am very pleased that Labor was in government during the GFC - I can't imagine what Australia would have experienced if Tony Abbott had been running the show and an inexperienced Treasurer like Joe Hockey was having his way.

Amen.

Absolutely not, especially in poorer, remote and country schools. In more affluent city areas where many schools are already well-resourced and teachers are highly experienced it probably wouldn't be such an issue, but schools in isolated parts of Australia are often very small and already somewhat disadvantaged, so this would have a devastating effect on them.

If teachers and families are determined these disadvantages could be overcome to some degree, but I think it's the arrogant attitude of the government that really rankles people most about this. When budget cuts are made, it's generally areas such as health and education that suffer the most...never the overly fat pay cheques of our country's leaders.
Tony Abbott, Christopher Pyne and Joe Hockey all received a good education and it hasn't helped them. The behaviour of Abbott and Pyne whilst Joe Hockey delivered this dreadful budget was absolutely embarrassing. Abbott giggling and speaking to Pyne with his mouth covered like a bitchy school girl. I don't know whether to consider it ignorant, insulting, extremely juvenile, disrespectful to his Treasurer or just plain very bloody worrying. I can't imagine that, knowing the budget delivery was televised, some MINDER didn't text or send a note to Abbott to alert him to the fact that he was not "coming across very well". Anyway, I guess education isn't so very important. Obviously doesn't do much.
Joe Hockey cooking the books.......
No. Education holds the key to the future. Less people have access to it, the less people will be qualified to enter the workforce.
