ISCA Media Release – Independent Schools Support Funding Model Improvements
The Independent Schools Council of Australia (ISCA) has welcomed statements from Education Minister, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, that he will review the former Government’s new school funding model in 2014.
ISCA Executive Director, Mr Bill Daniels, agrees that the new “Better Schools” funding model that is due to commence in January 2014 is facing serious implementation difficulties for independent schools.
“ISCA supports the focus of school funding being based on student need and also supports greater resources being available to these students. However the new funding model lacks transparency, is too complicated and is based on data that is unreliable and of poor quality”, Mr Daniels said.
“We look forward to working directly with Minister Pyne to achieve a sustainable and less complicated funding structure”, Mr Daniels said.
