Opposition leader Tony Abbott must re-evaluate his position on the Gonski school funding reforms in light of New South Wales's partnership with the Federal Government, say the Australian Greens.
The Australian Greens have called on Opposition Leader Tony Abbott to visit disadvantaged public schools before pledging to repeal any Gonski legislation.
Australian Greens spokesperson for Schools Senator Penny Wright said Mr Abbott's comments showed tremendous ignorance about systemic inequality in Australian schools.
The Australian Greens have expressed disappointment and frustration that COAG has wasted an historic opportunity to deliver fair funding for Australian schools.
"It is totally unacceptable the Liberal state governments are playing politics with education, while Australian children are missing out," Australian Greens Leader Senator Christine Milne said
