NSW Government announces additional funding for public schools
The NSW Government has signed up to the Gonski 2.0 agreement, which they claim will ensure additional funding to schools across the state.
From the news release:
"NSW has provided extra funding to public schools as it signs up to the Gonski agreement, ensuring the principles of truly needs-based, sector-blind funding for all students remain across the State. Premier Gladys Berejiklian, Education Minister Rob Stokes and Treasurer Dominic Perrottet announced today that a school funding agreement had been reached with the federal government and that the NSW Government would fund an additional $6.4 billion to 2027 for schools across the State from next year, bringing the State’s total investment to $148 billion for government and non-government schools. NSW schools will receive more than $226 billion to 2027. The deal ensures that Catholic and independent schools across the State will receive their additional funding promised recently by the federal government."
