Schools funding

In 2012, the landmark Gonski Review found that too many Australian children were missing out due to a lack of resources in our schools.

It recommended a shift to a needs-based funding model, plus a short-term injection of funds to help address disadvantage.

The Gonski needs-based funding model, introduced in 2014, was designed to give schools the resources they need to deliver a high-quality education to each and every student.

This needs-based funding model was a great success. But the Turnbull government scrapped Gonski after 2017 – right when the bulk of the money was scheduled to be delivered.

That means kids in under-resourced schools across Australia are being denied the support and opportunities they need to reach their potential.
