Resourcing the National Goals for Schooling: An Agreed Framework of Principles for Funding Schools
Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs (NJ1)
Funding for school education in Australia should be on the basis of clear and agreed policy principles for achieving effectiveness, efficiency, equity and a socially and culturally cohesive society. On the basis of these principles a national framework for funding schools will be supported by complementary State and Commonwealth models for funding government and non-government schools. This paper presents an agreed framework of five principles for funding schools. The principles do not prescribe a funding policy for individual governments or systems. Together they represent a direction for complementary Commonwealth and State funding approaches that: (1) recognise the relative weight of different cost factors across school sectors; (2) recognise the specific needs and cost burdens of different levels of schooling; and (3) provide a basis for government support to meet the growing costs of schooling over time.
