^^^ That picture above may soon be reality thanks to the careless treatment from our government ^^^

Research suggests there is a large hole in our disability funding scheme in Australia. 1/4 of a million Australian students, whom have a disability, are not receiving adequate financial and educational support from our government. Our country is supposed to look after everybody as a person, but it seems that the government is just cutting and cutting funds again! We are expected to see a 3 billion dollar cut in education  funding over the next 2-3 years, thanks to the Coalition yet again! This is practically CHILD ABUSE, how would you feel if your children had some form of disability but no one would support it. This is a proven statistic, 87% of Australian principals said during a formal interview, that they were pressured due to lack of funding to provide more Intergation Aides and support to disadvantaged students in their schools. This is could have a devastating effect to an impeccable country like ours! Disabled or not, this will greatly impact the next generation outside of school. Its time that our government started to put this almost infinite amount of taxes that we have to pay into something great, rather than in the Coalition's pockets!

1 Signature = 1 prayer for disabled children's rights!
