Southern Metropolitan schools to benefit from needs-based Gonski funding to public schools

Sep 29, 2015Media Releases

Children in Southern Melbourne will benefit from the State Government’s announcement of more than $34 million in additional funds for local public schools to deliver needs-based programs for students, the Australian Education Union said today.

With the recent release of the 2016 indicative school budgets, AEU Victorian Branch Deputy President Justin Mullaly said principals can now start planning to address some of their school’s key equity issues with the new investment.

“The State Government’s funding announcement is a positive step towards addressing the serious education funding gap holding back Victoria’s students.

“Schools in the Southern Metropolitan area will share in $34,341,163, and will welcome the reinvestment in public education after cuts and neglect by the former Napthine Government.

“Chronic underinvestment for more than a decade has left every Victorian public school student receiving $1,836 less than the national average each year, resulting in our students being the lowest funded in Australia.

Mr Mullaly said students have been badly let down by previous governments.

“There are far too many students from low socio-economic backgrounds who are falling behind other students, so it is encouraging to see funding dedicated to equity measures in our schools,” said Mr Mullaly.

“But the State Government must continue to deliver on needs-based Gonski funding through to 2019.

Mr Mullaly said the change in leadership at the Federal Government level has created an opportunity for the Commonwealth Government to step up and play their part.

“The new Prime Minister and Minister for Education must take a different approach to the issue of Commonwealth education funding and deliver their share of Victoria’s needs-based Gonski funding deal.

“The Turnbull Liberal Government must not continue to break their promise to support the Gonski needs-based education funding agreement and commit to funding its final two years: 2018 and 2019.

Unless Prime Minister Turnbull delivers on the school funding promise then Victorian students will miss out on $1 billion of additional funding over that time. We hope Mr Turnbull understands the importance Victorians place on public education.”

This month the AEU launched “Education for Everyone’s Needs”, its blueprint for public education in Victoria, which argued for needs-based funding to underpin investment in our schools.

“Southern Melbourne principals now have additional resources to begin to deliver more individual support to students as well as additional programs to better meet the needs of every child.”
