This Friday our Education Ministers from across Australia are meeting for the Education Council. We need a big push now in support of respectful relationships education.

Our schools can help end the family violence epidemic by teaching young people healthy relationship skills and by making sure that as workplaces and public institutions they are modelling respectful relationships and gender equality in everything they do.

There have been great announcements made across the country. But schools need further government funding and support to implement the program.

Our Education Ministers need to work together, to make sure that every single school is supported to ensure children are receiving best practice, comprehensively evaluated and resourced respectful relationship education.

Please contact your Education Minster on social media and make our voice even louder. The more we can show that the community is behind change, the more likely our politicians will listen.

Not sure what to say on Facebook?

Most of the Ministers have disabled the ability to write on their Facebook wall. But you can still be heard by filling in the comments section under a recent post. 

You will have the most effect if you keep your comment short and always be polite and respectful. 

If you’re not sure what to say simply cut and paste the comment below:

At Education Council this Friday, please make stopping family violence your number one priority. Please work together with your colleagues to deliver evidence based respectful relationships education to every child across Australia. If we provide better support for teachers with fully-resourced and consistent programs across the country, we can stop family violence before it happens.
