Media Release | September 2018

Fair Go For Public School Students

In responding to the release of the updated Schools Resourcing Agreement, Ian Anderson (President of AGPPA), speaking on behalf of over 5300 Government Primary Schools, welcomes additional money for schools but is disappointed that deals have been made which moves away from the original tenant of needs-based sector blind funding for all schools.

AGPPA calls on the Government to ensure that the 2.5 million students in public schools are not disadvantaged compared to other sectors.

Nothing short of full transparency is acceptable with regards to funding arrangements.

AGPPA is calling for the Morrison Government to increase funding for state schools so that they receive 100% of the Student Resource Standard (SRS).
