Gonski and the Catholic education authorities

Posted by Secular on December 7, 2012

Not 100% in line with our policies, but nevertheless an article offering some very interesting insights into the accountability of the funding arrangements with Catholic education authorities (or rather, lack thereof). Nicholas Reece finds that Catholic school funding is not based on need, with the elite schools getting the lion’s share, and as for attempts to make the system accountable: ‘. . . a recent review of these elite Catholic schools by former Productivity Commission economist and public education advocate Trevor Cobbold found the claims by the Catholic education authorities were “misleading and untrue”.’

Please also refer to our policy on education funding.
