State AId to Private Religious Schools is Uneconomic: It ever was, is, and shall be!

Press Release 605

Since the 1960s DOGS have claimed that State Aid to private religious schools was too expensive- both uneconomic and divisive.
Now, those espousing various versions of the ‘Needs’ policy are confronted by the figures. Consider the ACER research at http://research.acer.edu.au/aer/14 and http://www.smh.com.au/national/education/education-experts-say-2-billion...

Free education - the Basic Right of Children - under Threat.

Press Release 604

ree public education has existed for more than a century in Australia, and Abbott and Pyne through their think tanks, are attempting to change this.

PUBLIC EDUCATION SHOULD BE FREE, SECULAR AND UNIVERSAL, OPEN TO ALL CHILDREN, WITH WEALTHY OR POOR PARENTS.

Restore the "Free" to " Free Secular and Universal" Public Education

Press Release 599

The latest migration of Asian students into our public education institutions should be welcomed so long as education remains ‘free’. Our public schools should remain openly accessible without fees, and without any entrance requirements. Once barriers are introduced, the essential nature of our great public systems are badly compromised.

Religion Costs Australia $31 billion in Taxation Expenditures

Press Release 598

The following is a letter to the editor of the Sydney Morning Herald penned by Max Wallace which was not printed.

Victoria: The Private Education State Run by DLP Labor Government

Press Release 597

In a 50 word letter to The Age, 7 May 2015, one correspondent suggested that the Government should not put “Victoria: The Education State’ on car registration plates, but rather ‘Victoria the Private Education State.

In the last week, some public school supporters have been prepared to blow the whistle on what has REALLY happened to the DLP. It appeared to fade away. Not so. Santamaria’s children from the Democratic Labor Party of the 1950s have offspring – Santamaria’s grandchildren in the current Labor – and Coalition Parties. The influence of erstwhile members of the DLP and their fellow travellers is obvious at the highest levels of the Federal Government. But Victorians are starting to wake up to the influence of Santamaria’sgrandchildren in the Victorian Labor Government.
