2016 budget

Schools are set to get a $1.2 billion bump in funding for 2018–2020. Funding for public schools will increase by 11.1% in real terms between 2016–17 and 2019–20, and 7% for private schools. Unfortunately, the school funding package falls far short of what the Gonski reform plan calls for in the same years.
