NSW Still holding out....but for how long?

NSW Education Minister Rob Stokes has reaffirmed his opposition to the federal government’s $4.6 billion funding boost to the private school sector. Mr Stokes says the $1.2 billion choice and accessibility fund, a portion which will be handed to authorities from Catholic and independent schools to distribute, is inequitable because there is no deal like it for the public sector, despite making up two-thirds of schools in Australia. Mr Stokes says funding needs to be applied on a consistent basis across all sectors.
