While the Federal government has threatened to defund the Safe Schools Coalition program, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has taken a more positive stance. 

The Premier has said his government will “lock in funding at a state level”, even if the Turnbull government chooses to cut the program.

Reporter Rose Doole took a closer look at what’s been happening.
