MORE than 100 teachers, parents and community leaders converged on Marsden State High School last week to express their concerns about the Federal Government's proposed Gonski educational funding.

On hand to answer their questions were Minister for School Education, Early Childhood and Youth Peter Garrett and Federal Member for Rankin Craig Emerson.

Mr Garrett outlined the recommendations proposed by the Federal Government's Gonski report before taking questions from audience members.

Mr Garrett said the purpose of the report was to improve declining student performances and help close the gap between high performing and disadvantaged students.

"We want to make sure that every child in every school can do the best they can and that they have come out of school able to make the best contribution to their community and the economy," he said.

"This report looks at all the needs of all students.

"No student in any Australian school should be prevented in getting the best education possible."
