There is an equity problem in Australia and we urgently need to talk about it.

Christopher Pyne couldn’t be more wrong when he told us recently 'schools have all the money they need to get the outcomes for our students.' Worse, he claimed schools are 'awash' with extra funds from the Commonwealth and any attempt to discuss funding was not only 'an old argument', but 'asinine'.

I believe to not talk about it would be asinine.
