Student with disability funding in Independent schools a “loading” in name only

The Executive Director of the Independent Schools Council of Australia, Mr Bill Daniels, has stated that the article in The Australian today cites funding data for Independent schools out of context and in a grossly inaccurate and misleading way.

“Claiming that some Independent schools are receiving additional funding from government of up to $43,036 per student is nonsense” Mr Daniels said.

“There are no Independent schools in Australia receiving anything close to the figures cited for students with disability.  The figures are simply a technical distortion in the way the funding model data is presented.”
