Intro about

Putting Our Kids First is a community campaign representing public school teachers, principals, education assistants, support staff and parents. We believe that every child has the right to access a well-funded, high quality public education.

Over eight years of Government, Colin Barnett's education cuts meant fewer education assistants, teachers and support staff, a loss of funding for specialist programs, increased class sizes, a reduction in resources and less individual attention for our kids.

A State election was held on March 11th, 2017 and the Putting Our Kids First campaign highlighted that every child deserves to receive a quality education, which should be the first priority of any State Government.  

We're calling on political parties to invest in public education and put our kids first, not last.
