Future uncertain for organisation supporting Aboriginal early education

The Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Nigel Scullion, says the new funding model is better as it is now going directly to the preschools. But AECSL says they do not provide direct funding services, but rather advocacy and support for organisations working with preschool education. The organisation’s future is hanging in the balance.
