Qld Election 2017

QLD Parents Vote THIS SATURDAY!

Queenslanders are going to the polls this Saturday 25 November 2017. 

UPDATE:

EDUCATION REPORT CARD

How do the parties stack up when it comes to education?

One of the priority issues for Queensland parents at this election was education.

We wrote to each of the parties asking them to detail their plans as to how they were going to ensure our kids get the best possible education. You can find a copy of their full responses below.

Having reviewed these responses as well as each of the specific policy announcements the politicians have made over the course of the campaign, we have made an assessment on the performance of each party based on the priority and value each place on education and how their plans will make a difference in our children's lives.

We've assessed each party across four areas - student learning and outcomes, teachers, school resources and early learning

The below report card with an overall assessment, gives you a snapshot of how well each party has performed over the course of the campaign. This can help you make up your mind on who best to vote for and who you think will best deliver on what you and your family need.

In a first for Queensland – parents, educators and providers have been working together to ensure all Queensland candidates were aware how important early learning is for our kids.

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 and we have now received a response from The Greens.

These responses, along with the policies announced during the election, will inform our 'Education Report Card' we'll be publishing on how each of the Party's have performed this election. Stay tuned!

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.
