This is a once in a generation chance to secure full funding of public schools.
The needs of Australia’s children are growing but the funding from governments hasn’t kept up.
Right now, 98% of public schools are resourced below the Schooling Resource Standard (SRS) which is the minimum amount governments have agreed that they need.
Full funding for public schools is the only way to ensure every child gets every opportunity to succeed. It means more one-on-one support for children, more time for teachers and better results.
More teachers and more specialist support to ensure every child receives the opportunities and help they need to fulfil their potential. It means more individual attention for every child and more intensive support for children with complex needs.
Smaller class sizes means more time for teaching and learning. Teachers can spend more time preparing high quality learning activities and collaborating on the best ways to meet – and exceed - the needs of every child in their school.
Principals and teachers know that the right funding leads to the right results. They are delivering a great education for students in public schools but they are being asked to do too much with too little. Workloads are unsustainable and more teachers are leaving the profession early. Fully funding public schools will provide teachers with the time and support to help every child succeed.
