PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN VICTORIA FACE A FUNDING CRISIS-

DO YOUR BLOCK !

 

Public schools in Victoria face a funding crisis. Combined Commonwealth and Victorian Government funding for private schools has increased by four times that for public schools since 2009-10. Projected funding estimates show that private schools will be over-funded by about $730 million for the rest of the decade while public schools will be under-funded by nearly $20 billion.

New figures PRODUCED BY Trevor Cobbold from Save our Schools show that government funding increases have massively favoured private schools over public schools in Victoria since 2009-10. Between 2009-10 and 2019-20 government funding for private schools increased by $2,582 per student, adjusted for inflation, compared to $667 per student for public schools. In percentage terms, private school funding increased by 27.9% compared to only 5% for public schools.

So, What is to be Done?

The Australian Education Union have a plan for an Easter up rising. They have sent the following to their members and supporters of the Fair Funding campaign as follows. If you want to participate, contact them and “do your block”. Here is their plan:


It's time to fund public schools properly and fairly

Hi ,

Can you help us deliver "Every School Every Child" election flyers over the Easter holiday? 

We want to raise awareness about how the Morrison Government has gone missing around ensuring public schools are properly and fairly funded.

We can post 200 or 400 flyers for you to deliver in your neighbourhood –  click here, fill in your details and we will post them out to you before the school holidays.

The order deadline is noon 23 March.

With just weeks until the Federal Election this is an important time to inform the public of the Morrison Government’s failure and the need for any future government to take action to support public schools.

Warm regards,

The Every School Every Child team

Scott Morrison says it's not his job to ensure public schools are properly and fairly funded. He’s wrong.
