Title Investing in schools - funding the future / Adam Rorris. [ElectronicResource]
Published 2021.
Collation 83 pages [PDF]
Summary Note "Investment in Australian schools has favoured private schools to an astonishing degree. Private schools have received investment in school facilities that is at least twice as much received by public schools per student in any given year (outside of the BER program years) and even as high as nearly four times in one year. This means for every dollar invested per child in a private school, a public school child would get somewhere between 27 cents and 50 cents. The Ratio of Inequity (ROI) in spending between sectors is so high, it is more a ratio of shame than inequity. Based on this calculation of inequity, public schools were collectively deprived of $21.5 billion in school investment for the first six years the coalition was in power (2013–18) ... Recommendation 1. Minimum per student investment should match private schools ... Recommendation 2. Cease capital support for private schools ... Recommendation 3. School communities (teachers, students, parents and community members using schools) coordinate to identify critical gaps such as examples of schools with large number of demountables, schools in hot areas with no air con etc. and other glaring capacity of maintenance needs ... Recommendation 4. Modern monitoring and reporting systems engaged all in schools. State and territory departments of education should put in place digital solutions that can be accessed via mobile apps ... Recommendation 5. Establish School Facilities Board at regional and state levels." - p. 5.
