Why it Matters
As a mother and a future grandmother, I am appalled with the way gender-theory programs are being taught in Victoria. The Andrews ALP Government has made safe schools a compulsory program in every state secondary school. During this term of government, I was able to secure a commitment from the government that these programs would not be tied to the funding for Christian, Catholic and Independent schools however this commitment is limited to this term only. If I am not in Parliament again I worry about who will be holding the government to this.
While the Liberal-National opposition party have committed to removing the safe schools program, I am concerned about related programs such as Respectful Relationships and with how much gender-theory has become embedded in Victorian curriculum.
I am committed to ensuring our schools teach what parents want their children to learn. This would include:
- Parents having a real say in the education of their children;
- A "back to basics" approach to education;
- Freeing schools and the curriculum from contested gender-theory;
- Removing Safe Schools and ALL similar programs from our education system.
What I’ve Done
I was the first parliamentarian in Australia who has ever brought a motion against the Safe Schools Program to debate in any jurisdiction.

A vote for me is a vote to protect what your children and your grandchildren are being taught in school.
