The National Catholic Education Commission (NCEC) will accept the Australian Government’s invitation to participate fully in the analysis of the recommendations of the Report on Funding for Schooling released on 20 February.
“There is much detailed work to be done”, said Mrs Therese Temby, Chair of NCEC. “We have asked Minister Garrett and his department to release as a matter of urgency the detailed modelling that has already been completed on the Gonski recommendations”, she said.
In committing to work with the Australian Government to unpack the implications of the Gonski recommendations for school funding, NCEC asks all governments to commit to the additional funding that the Gonski panel says is required for school funding reform.
“A genuine cross-sectoral commitment to detailed analysis, model building, together with policy work, is now absolutely necessary”, said Mrs Temby.
