自由党为学生提供免费教科书

Liberals to make school text books free

 

如果自由党政府 11 月当选执政,那公立中学和高中的学童将不再需要支付学校教科书的费用。

对于拥有两名在学孩童的家庭而言,每年可省下高达 1,000 澳币的费用。

当前 Daniel Andrews 治理下,生活成本一路飙升,许多家庭为了给子女提供更好的教育而捉襟见肘,而政府提供免费教科书,对于这些家庭而言犹如久旱逢甘霖,帮助不小。

在自由党的治理下,家庭不需再为学童购买教科书,相反的,学校将购买教科书给学生就学时使用,但学生在学期终或年末需将教科书归还。

这项政策不会受到一个家庭学生人数的限制,也不需先通过经济状况调查,因此所有在公立学校就读的学生家庭都可从中受惠,省下不小的一笔钱。

书籍再次使用,採用租用机制,对于整个社会而言,将可更有效的运用资源,减少浪费,缔造多赢。

Free school books for students under Liberals

Families with students at government secondary schools will no longer have to pay for school textbooks if a Liberal state government is elected in November.

This will save up to $1,000 a year for a family with two secondary students. It will be a big help

for Victorian families struggling to provide their children with a good education and cope with ever increasing cost of living pressures under the Andrews government.

Under the Liberals, families won’t be required to buy textbooks for their students. Instead, schools will purchase the textbooks for students to use while they are studying a subject, and the students will then return the books at the end of the semester or year.

This will not be restricted on the number of students a family has, and will not be means tested, so all families with students at government secondary schools will be able to save money from this reform.
