TIME TO STOP SQUABBLING OVER FUNDING

24-Nov-2017 12:57 PM

The education reform conditions proposed by the Commonwealth Government for the payment of the additional school funding are appropriate and reasonable.

Carolyn Grantskalns, Chief Executive of the Association of Independent Schools of SA, said:  “It is time to stop the squabbling between the State and Federal governments over school funding.
 
“Governments need to provide certainty for schools and parents.
 
“Like the State Government, the AISSA would prefer the Commonwealth to pay the final two years of Gonski as agreed in 2013 by the Gillard and Weatherill governments.
 
“That won’t happen now because different funding arrangements are in place.  We must accept this and move on.
 
“It is time for all politicians to put the children of South Australia first.”
