ISCA Media Release – Independent schools welcome funding announcements
The Independent Schools Council of Australia (ISCA) welcomes the joint announcement today by the Prime Minister, the Hon Tony Abbott MP and the Minister for Education, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP on school funding.
ISCA Executive Director, Mr Bill Daniels, said the funding announced for state and territory Associations of Independent Schools (AISs) confirms the Government’s commitment to honouring arrangements made with the previous government.
“This provides funding certainty for AISs and will allow them to assist the 1,100 independent schools in Australia to implement the Australian Education Act 2013.”
The 560,000 students attending independent schools can now proceed with confidence in 2014 to access the expertise and assistance provided to independent schools by AISs. This expertise will support independent schools to maximise student learning outcomes and effectively address educational disadvantage.”
