Education Is Not a Guessing Game
LABOR S candidate in Mackellar is a former schoolteacher, so it’s not unexpected Rhonda Funnell will make education a centerpiece of her project to wrest the blue-ribbon federal seat from the Liberals.
I’m standing for Labor because we will totally fund the Gonski contract, keep TAFE in public hands and put an end to (Prime Minister) Malcolm Turnbull s attacks on college, she said. I’ve seen the power that education needs to improve lives, both as a student and as a teacher.
I’ve taught at more than 20 schools on the northern beaches and overseas, so I understand that education is crucial for the chance making a better life.
