14 Dec 2018 - update

Queensland state schools will apparently be condemned to languish at less than 90 percent of the schooling resource standard for the next five years under a federal government funding arrangement signed between the state and federal governments yesterday.

A technical briefing will be provided to all stakeholders later this afternoon and more detail will be known then, including the reform commitments Queensland has been required to adopt to secure less than minimum funding for Queensland schools.

It does appear that the unacceptable requirements of the federal government’s ‘reform’ agenda have not been adopted by Queensland but that is subject to confirmation later today.

Despite more rhetoric about ‘record’ levels of funding, the minimum funding level set in 2011 is even further off now. The importance of a change of federal government at the next general election has never been greater.
