80% of additional funding in last two years of the original Gonski was to public schools - under Turnbull's new plan it is less than half. Not needs-based funding at all! Apparently they are going to take money off some elite, mega rich private schools ( tinkering) which is a good PR move but that's all. The states weren't consulted over the new vague plan, apparently the NSW education minister might take them to court for fudging them on the original plan. The Victorian Government thinks there will be a $630 million shortfall for Victorian schools. It is essentially a 22 billion dollar cut! The AEU has been caught flat footed over this because of the reliance on Gonski who has now 'gone rogue'. Maybe they should promote the'Boston Plan' ( Ken Boston was part of the review)
So now we have the ridiculous situation where Turnbull has employed Gonski to lead a new review into schools funding. Having largely gotten it right the first time, he'll now do it again!
I wonder why?????
The Queensland Government sees through the nonsense.
Meanwhile....this is how much Birmingham's higher education cuts will effect students.
