This is the title of a book recently published by Marion Maddox , the professor of Politics at Macquarie University. It is available at Embiggen Book Shop in Melbourne. It represents a realisation by the Sydney elite that perhaps the DOGS have been right all along. You can have a Denominational or a public system funded by the State. You cannot have both.

Press Release 539

The Jesuit educated troika of the Australian Government, Abbott, Pyne and Hockey are attempting to prove their credentials as committed market ideologues . They are reluctant or flatly refuse to prop up failing industries in the car and manufacturing sector.
So why do they throw billions of dollars at a failed denominational system of education? Historically and in the current generation this system has failed to educate the nation’s children. Its very rationale is to turn children away while wasting taxpayers’ money on luxurious , duplicate facilities for elite or religious minorities?
