ISCA Media Release – One national model for school funding unachievable
The previous Labor Government’s idea to design a common national funding model for all schools was a commendable but unachievable vision, according to Independent Schools Council of Australia (ISCA) Executive Director, Mr Bill Daniels. Mr Daniels was giving evidence to the Senate Select Committee on School Funding in Sydney today.
“We have been left with merely the rhetoric of a national funding model, and a reality that we have a more complex and less transparent situation than existed before, and this is most unsatisfactory”, he said.
Mr Daniels urged the Committee to recommend that the Commonwealth Government moves quickly to amend the funding arrangements in a way that meets these effective and efficient public policy criteria.
