This campaign is calling for full funding of all public schools. The campaign is led by the Australian Education Union and supported by groups representing parents, principals, youth and a range of other community and social justice groups. Parents Victoria is a supporter of the campaign.
From the campaign website:
The future funding of every public school in Australia is being decided by the politicians in the next 12 months. 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.
