Ellen Sandell and Greens call for long term education solutions

Ellen Sandell, Greens candidate for the state seat of Melbourne, has backed Labor’s promise to spend $10 million on the redevelopment of Carlton Primary School. [1]

“The Greens support additional funding to Carlton Primary School, and if elected I will work hard to undo the damage done by the Liberal government.

“However, rather than a quick fix, band aid solution to a single school, the Greens are working for long lasting systemic change in our schools.

"For example, North Melbourne primary school is desperately overcrowded because of a lack of schools in the CBD and Docklands. This is an issue that is only going to get worse.

Like the Labor candidate, I’m committed to undoing the damage of the Liberal government and increasing funding to primary schools, and to Carlton Primary School. However I think a better thought out, long term solution is required to fix Victoria's primary education problems" said Ms Sandell.

“Victorian and Federal Labor have failed to invest what is needed for all our schools and Tony Abbott’s unfair Budget will rip over $80 billion in schools and hospital funding from the states.”
