Catholic school enrolments to stagnate

Catholic school enrolments are expected to stagnate over the next decade while numbers at independent and state schools grow.

As Catholic schools benefit from the Morrison government's $4.6 billion non-government school funding deal, its NSW schools are predicted to lose 8400 students over the next decade despite a population boom.

Catholic education chiefs say fee rises are to blame but others in the sector say confidence in the public school system is increasing and question whether the Royal Commission into child sex abuse has hurt confidence in the Catholic system.

Public school enrolments forecast to boom by 23 times more than Catholic sector over the next decade so why has Morrison  given $4.6 billion to private schools and ignored the national trends about where the need really is? In public schools !
