MYSCHOOL :THE RESOURCE THAT KEEPS ON GIVING- EVIDENCE OF EXTRAORDINARY CAPITAL GRANTS TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS

Press Release 805

Financial analysts have discovered the MYSCHOOL website is a gift that keeps on giving – evidence of gross and ridiculous inequities in education funding.
The MYSCHOOL website, rather than the Gonski ‘Needs” enquiry, is the most valuable inheritance from the Julia Gillard government.
The gross inequities between direct per capita grants to private rather than public schools has been well documented by Trevor Cobbold of Save Our Schools at http://saveourschools.com.au/
The taxpayer is now subsidising some private schools at more than 100% of requisite running costs.
Take them over? But what about their real estate?
Well, now the figures are indicating that taxpayers are paying for that also. So, as the funding and social - but not the educational divide- becomes ever wider, is it time to just – take the private schools over?
The State Aid policy has proved to be a socially divisive, expensive failure.
The time has come for action !

Diane Ravitch and other American educators have joined a few dots. It leads one to ask questions of wealthy corporations who sell guns, ban unions and bankroll ‘for profit ‘charter schools’.

Their analysis underlines the dangers inherent in the privatisation of public education.
