Divisive commentary on school funding unhelpful

The Independent Schools Council of Australia (ISCA) today expressed disappointment at divisive and unhelpful media coverage in the wake of comments made on the Q&A program last night.

ISCA Executive Director Colette Colman said that, “School funding arrangements in Australia are extremely complex and the details are not widely understood. Independent schools are an easy target for commentators, however pitting school sectors against each other is not helpful, as there are over funded schools in every sector.”

Students attending Independent schools receive significantly less funding than government school students, with the majority of funding contributed by parents and the school community.  This after-tax private contribution saves the Australian taxpayer more than $4.3 billion every year. This is a reflection of needs based funding at work.

Because the majority of schools in Australia belong to systems, if some of those schools are deemed over-funded their systems can redistribute Commonwealth funding entitlements across schools to compensate for lost income. However stand-alone Independent schools are highly vulnerable to funding changes as they do not have systemic backup.
