QLD Parents Vote
Queenslanders will be going to the polls Saturday 25 November 2017. As we did at the 2016 Federal Election, we intend to ensure the parent voice is front and centre during this election. We will also keep you up to date on where each of the political parties stand on the issues you care about.
ReachTEL poll results point to likely LNP win on the back of One Nation support. But what does that mean for Queensland families?
Education a clear priority for Queensland Parents - response from party leaders
Last week our Executive Director, Jo Briskey wrote to each of the party leader's asking that they provide clear detail on their and their party's plan for education.
Jo asked for a response by 5pm Tuesday 14th. Only two party leaders had responded by that time - Queensland Labor and Pauline Hanson's One Nation. We've recently received a response from the LNP which you can find below. However, we're still waiting for a response from The Greens.

Education a clear priority for Queensland Parents
Of the several hundred of Queensland parents who have completed our survey it is clear that education is a top priority for many at this election.
So today our Executive Director, Jo Briskey has written to each of the party leader's asking that they provide clear detail on their and their party's plan for education.
As we saw during the federal election, working parents, particularly mums, will likely decide this election with many still making up their minds on who they'll support come November 25.
Ultimately, we know parents will support the politicians who support their families.
