“There will be a small number of schools that will experience some negative growth, that’s around 24 schools across Australia. They are largely within the eastern seaboard, in fact, they are entirely along the eastern seaboard.”
Though stopping short of actually naming any institution, prior communication from the Government has indicated that elite independent and private institutions with runaway funding levels would be first in line to have their cashflow curtailed.
“This investment will set Australian children on the path to academic excellence and success in their future lives.”“It will deliver real needs-based funding for children from all backgrounds in every town and every city and every region and every state – in every classroom of our great nation.”
It should be noted that the amount now promised to the education sector by the Liberal Government is still some $22billion beneath the mark promised by Labor at the last election.
