Could Turnbull give a Gonski?

In Inside Story (24.9.15) Dean Ashenden suggests that under Prime Minister Turnbull there is the opportunity to revisit Gonski.

‘Among the many areas in which the Abbott administration was gratuitously adversarial, and blatantly deceitful, was schools funding. It opposed Gonski, then supported it, then ditched it, the stance on each occasion dictated by party-political advantage seen in the shortest of terms.

What better way for the new minister to distance himself from his predecessor, or for the new government to demonstrate that it is not the old one in drag, than to reverse the ill-judged and petty decision to dump Gonski?
