I'm conducting a community survey about out-of-pocket expenses in state schools in Queensland.
As a state MP, I hear stories frequently about how hard it is for families to cover school expenses, even in the state education system, which should be free. The cost for things like uniforms, books and pens, laptops and excursions, can really add up.
So I can give the best possible feedback to the government, I'd love to capture as many views and experiences as possible from parents, guardians and carers of kids at state schools right across Queensland.
The survey is totally anonymous.
Once complete, we'll send the survey results to the Minister for Education and the Premier, and share them with the community, to keep fighting for an education system which is genuinely free.
