Our students and teachers deserve nothing less.

Public schools are being left underfunded and desperate for resources while Liberal and Labor Governments have given billions to private schools. 

Parents and teachers are constantly needing to dip into their own pockets to give public school kids basic supplies for their education; classrooms are ageing and lack high-quality equipment; and schools are rarely climate conscious or fully accessible. 

On top of all this, the impacts of Covid have only worsened the divide between public and private schools. Now, teachers and students around the country are returning to classrooms which are poorly ventilated and a health risk for all. 

School sets young people up for life and it cannot be about who can afford to pay for it. That’s why the Greens’ plan will help our schools deliver free, world-class public education that meets everyone’s needs.

Our plan will:

  • Invest $49 billion over the next 10 years to fully fund public schools and make them genuinely free for all students
  • Provide $400m a year to build safe and modern teaching and learning facilities for students and teachers
  • Make schools sustainable and accessible through the $5 billion Green Education Infrastructure Fund
  • Provide $224.1m immediately for the installation of HEPA filters and CO2 monitors to improve air quality in schools
  • Disabled people have a right to inclusive education. We will invest an initial $10 million over four years to co-design a National Inclusive Education Transition Plan

The Greens are the only party with a plan to guarantee all public schools are fully funded to meet the needs of their students, teachers and parents.

A truly free and high-quality public school education available to every young person in Australia is within reach.
