Budget week and the absolute disregard for School Resource Standards in public schools

Saturday, 6 April 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Budget week- 'If this budget is Scomo's idea of a fair go, themn it's time for him to go'- Caranna Haythorpe, AEU. Government priorites- private schools in their DNA. Less than 30% of students attend private schools while public enrollments rise yet that 1/3 get $12 billion, while 2/3 ie. public schools get only $7.5 billion. Insult to public education- NO  capital works funding for public schools. Not a mention of TAFE in the budget. 99% of public schools receive LESS than the School Resources Standard recommendation. Evil in the U.S.- Besty DeVos's ignorant statement on class size, plus racist exam questions. V.E.T. funding in comparison to university funding.
