    Smoke Screen. ATARs are everything for elite private schools. The fancy facilities are just a facade to disguise the fact that these schools secretly cheat their students into sought-after high ATAR prestige tertiary courses by supplying them with inside access to exam-sensitive information by way of the assessors and senior assessors, text authors and subject design committee members they deliberately employ. Why do you think these students really fail first year Uni?

            End government funding for private schools now! No more money for private schools until all Australian schools have the same facilities.
            Funding private schools is nothing but a way for rich parents to have their kids private education funded by the poor and middle class. This makes their private school fees are lower while the rest of the country has to struggle.

              I want to bang that hot presenter on Abc news and blame the government for the school problem as the gov just wants to line their pockets money instead of spending on anything but rubbish ideas like funding a lot of money to check on sleeping snails

                  The information is presented really poorly... the main fact is the top 30% of schools receive almost 30% of government funding. Seems right?

                          To all the people who are buying into these ABC news lies, just remember that those top 4 schools, only received 0.5% of their income from the government, which equates to $500,000. More than 99% of the income received by private schools is through tuition fees and donations. Also, the reason the government still funds private schools is more for subsidies reasons, what you also have to realise is that when the private schools build all these new buildings they have to pay the construction workers, and they pay them a lot and guess what most of their kids will go to public schools. Its cliche to call it fake news, but they are simply distorting the facts for their own interests. My personal views are that if the private school is self-sufficient it should not receive school funding and it should go to private schools but cutting funding from private schools won't instantly give tens of millions of dollars to each public school.

                            I still can't get it out of my mind about that Corruption that happen a few years ago in a Muslim Private School, the Muslim CEO/Administrator in charge he kept for himself over $120 Million Dollars, he tough it was a Gift from the Tax Payer to his own Bank Account the money. That shows that the Australian Government they were spending Hundreds of Millions of Australian Tax Payers on Muslim Private Schools and the Australian Public School they only received just about $40 Million Dollars that same year.
                            The White Australian people and their White children are not just being REPLACED with Muslim "refugees", the Australian Government is giving Hundreds of Millions more Money to the Muslims Private Schools than to the Australian Public School. There should be a Royal Commission Inquiry to find out why those Politicians are treating the White people and their Public School children of Australia as if they don't matter.

                              GhostShip09 Muslim’s this, Muslim’s that. This report focused on all private schools receiving more funding but you just want to focus on the ‘muslim’ schools. You are very ignorant and a racist who loves putting the blame on a small group rather than the full collective of private schools and the government who hands out the subsidies.

                              it's because they take take fees and sell their school as a service product. private business shouldn't be depending so much on public funding.

                            Hang on.. What is the point of this report? To say that privately funded schools, attended and largely paid for by the richest 1% of Australians, spend more on infrastructure development than publicly funded schools? Well, isn't that kind of the point of paying for a private school?

                              Australia used to produce top educated scholars but these days students are coming behind third rate countries. The Government's of both persuasion want to educate overseas students than giving Australian students a fair go at a good education. Parent's are paying to educate their children not Governments. Government's spend less on education as they want to produce "super schools" to cut back the amount of school buildings there are to maintain. How many schools have been closed down as being "Un-Viable" due to having a few dozen children. Schools need money to run efficiently to provide a good education and help students who may be struggling not cut back on funds, infact funds should increase each year. The three basics that a community needs are great schools, Hospital care and a Police Force, once these are in place money should be provided each year to assist the school's to bring out the best education in every child. Back in the day when I went to school, especially Primary School, we were disciplined if a child misbehaved but these days it's a free for all go. Parent's can no longer punish their children in fear of having the Police come to their door, don't get me wrong, if a child is beaten and has bruising that lasts for weeks then yes by all means report that to the authorities. A slap on the backside never harmed anyone and someone who received my fair share of punishment I turned out ok, I was tough manners, politeness, Give my seat to a lady, open doors or even offer to carry their groceries to their vehicle or home for a lady. If an adult spoke to us, children would answer Yes or No Sir if answering a man or Yes or No Ma'am.

                                    i didn't get assaulted but i had a few teachers that bullied me. there were couple of women in one high school who gave me detentions for no reason at all, they just made up some bogus reasons even when i was trying my best to behave. if i have kids i'll probably send them to a private because i dont want them to be subjected to the same treatment and it's easier to talk to the teachers when you're literally paying their salary.

                                    @JewTube you aren't entitled to government fighter jets. *ALL* Australian children are entitled to an education. If the parents choose to pay extra, why should they be punished?


                                    For example - say every child is entitled to an education worth $1000. They get this education provided by the taxpayer, so they pay $0 to get $1000 worth of education. If the parents want an education worth $1100, how much do you think it is fair for them to pay? I'd say that, since $1100 - $1000 = $100 that they should pay $100. You say that they should pay $1100. All it means is that only the very rich will be able to afford better education. Please explain how that is fair?

                                    @Darryn Danger Jones so i pay taxes, but the goverment is never going to give me a fighter jet that im paying taxes on. not that i want the jets, but the goverment is forcing me to pay for them anyway.

                                    @Darryn Danger Jones Imagine the richest school in the world.... what you are pretty much telling me is that the government should give them the same amount of assistance (or more) as the poorest school in the world? That is what is going on here.


                                    The government would surely pay for extracurricular expenses if someone *needed it*. You are missing the point.



                                    There is no reason why these successful schools need funding. It is a waste of tax. Tax is necessary for building the foundation of a prosperous nation by bringing up our least fortunate and transforming our societies.


                                    Otherwise, what happens with a completely free market is that the wealth of the rich spirals out of control and they inevitably abuse their power to become even richer.
                                    Which is probably what has happened with the government funding the private sector.

                                    potato psoas how so? Currently private health patients are covered by Medicare, like everyone, but they choose to pay extra *on top* to potentially get extra. Why can’t parents pay extra *on top* to potentially get extra education?

                                    Should children who are at state schools, but whose parents pay for outside tutoring, be billed for the entire cost of their education?

                                        This is just another facet of the Western Neoliberal strategy being implemented in Australia. The strategy of the plutocrats in countries like US, Britain, and Australia is to defund social services to where the public scream for a functional system to the point where they will eventually be willing to pay for that service. You can see this in the Health system now. You currently have to be bleeding from the anus to qualify for a colonoscopy and the funding will continue to be reduced until the take-up of private health care insurance increases. Eventually the US private system will be adopted in Australia to extract more wealth from the population and sadly many in the population won’t know what’s going to hit them. There is a quote from a Neoliberal pundit that explains the plutocrats’ point of view, “If they can’t afford to pay for life-saving healthcare, they have the freedom to die”. Yes, this is Neoliberalism greed we are observing, but it is also Neoliberal ideology.

                                        It’s the same for education. Eventually school funding will be reduced to such a level the US system of Charter Schools will be introduced as a viable alternative. Currently Charter Schools are being implemented across the US by Trump’s Betsy DeVos. Charter Schools are public funded private schools. Charter schools have layers of private sector corporations sandwiched between the government and the student and the operating cost is paid out of the public purse. It doesn’t improve education but it’s just another method to extract more wealth from the taxpayer. As you may have guessed, this is an intermediary step to the complete privatization of education. After all, why do the plutocrats need education for the masses; you don’t need a Ph.D. to deliver pizza or drive an Uber. Sorry folks, but the government now works for the corporations and for the interests of their major shareholders; welcome to Mussolini’s style of fascism.

                                          @Brian Goodman177 : Let's see how many awaken to the "Boiling Frog" principle of the final stages of implementing Neoliberalism over the coming years. It could be decades or if another financial crisis hits, it may be months; It will be an interesting societal experiment when it does happen. The plutocrats and their minions are well equipped to deceive and they have a transgenerational approach to their strategy. I hope you are correct, but unless the people come together and push back in a coordinated and aggressive effort, nothing will stop the inevitable. Somehow I believe the people will remain divided as intended and the plutocrats will eventually win. Welcome to Hayek's "Road to Serfdom".

                                          @Animal Farm The push toward privatisation is much stronger in America - and many support it over there. There's an entire political culture dedicated to it. Here, it's different. Only a minority support such a move. Incremental moves will be noticed and too many won't be tolerated.

                                          ​@Brian Goodman177 :The trick those Washington puppets in Canberra have up their sleeve is what's called Ratchet Effect politics. Put simply, Ratchet Politics is when both political parties capable of taking power are both working for special interests need to create a narrative to maintain the illusion the people have a say in their future. Usually the “Conservative” party moves far to the right and then the “Labor” party uses deception to follow. The “Labor” party might not move that far to the right but it never again moves to the left. This is why it is called the Ratchet Effect; its like the handbrake on your car. You can keep pulling it tighter and tighter, but you have to push the button to release. The Labor Party has no release button; it can only follow the “Conservatives” to the right.

                                          The LNP works for the global plutocrats; the Labor Party works for the global plutocrats but needs to give the illusion it works for the people to maintain the illusion of choice and democracy. The dissolution of Medicare won't happen overnight, there will be a subtle and accelerating ongoing campaign before the event and then a dedicated divide-and-conquer strategy implemented like when they increased the pension age. You have to understand there are teams of psychologists working on these problems; working behind the scenes and using strategies straight out of Edward Bernays’ ”Propaganda” to get people to accept ever accelerating Neoliberal policy. The average person on the street doesn’t understand Neoliberal policy; they see deregulation, privatization, lowering corporate taxes, expanding imperialism, and stagnant wage growth and they are led to believe this will be good for society. The truth of the matter actually came from the mouth of Margaret Thatcher, “There is no such thing as society”. The average person on the street with their short attention span and ignorant outlook may believe the majority is conscious of the plutocrats' strategy, but they are actually deluding themselves. One day I hope that will be able to understand the links between Neoliberalism, the deindustrialization of the West and the increase wealth and income gap.

                                          In fact, the increasing of the pension age is the perfect example if you wish to understand Ratchet Effect politics. Remember the Labor argument; the Australian people should be thankful for Labor’s effort in stopping the pension age going to 70. Remember how Labor also argued for increasing pension age while they were telling you they were pushing against the increase; this is a Ratchet Effect political dead giveaway.

                                          So if the LNP and Labor will clearly be willing to screw the people for their masters, for whom are you going to vote that have a chance of taking government? Don't feel too isolated by this revelation; the US has the same problem with Republicans and Corporate Democrats. If Australia is lucky, it may get its own resurgence of politicians that are intent on working for the interests of the people like Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Pressley, and Tlaib; although how long this resurgence lasts in the current political climate is anyone’s guess.

But it's getting so bad now that something must be done to counteract the insane greed now. Imagine a greedy oligarchs that can spend a million dollars per day for 258 years. I even doubt that is true because his money is invested. It's insane insatiable greed. An oligarchs that has got dozens of palances around the world 3 helicopters, 3 Airbus 320s, mean while children scavenging food off the rubbish tips with cockroaches and rats. Pagpag. Insane greed. 2 billion profit was a huge profit now it's 50 billion profit.

                                              this may sound funny at first, but welfare and public spending doesn't just go to poor people and public things. it also goes to rich people and private things. this is probably why most rich people aren't really libertarians, because they get a lot of goverment. often more than poor people do. call it crony capitalism or whatever but that's how the system works.

                                              mark is right, however i think the solution would be for privates to be tax exempt and have more autonomy than public. it's important to remember that privates are run as for profits, surely they can exist on their own fees, especially with tax exception - which is far more than most privates business get.

                                              Because the parents who are paying for school fees for private schools, are also paying taxes which help fund public education.

                                                Jane Smith all students are entitled to government funding. If you want to pay more for education that’s up to you. There is a element of fees in all schools but are not mandatory in state schools. State schools should have a world class level of education which I think you’ll find is true in most circumstances. The problem with schools falling behind in not always because of funding but poor management of the particular school. Ie it comes down to the local people running the school.

What the news is getting at, is why should private schools receive MORE government funding then public schools, when there is an obvious need for more funding for public? You do realize, the ONLY reason the government even fund private is to take the pressure off the public schools and obviously this is not working because private schools charge more while only taking in a small portion of students! It's so important to have public schools, because the majority of parents cannot afford to pay schools fees of greedy private schools! Everyone deserves an education, and public schools are struggling to keep up - its not the private schools that are feeling the demand! its the public!

And the 4 private school already successful and why need to suck more allowance than the poor kids? Way too far.

They just talk about useless crap like halls, air-conditioning, computers and sports facilities. The ABC deliberately conflates schooling with education. The government never provides education, they force children into schooling, which is more about social and political indoctrination.

                                                    No, the govt just needs to pull funding from private schools. If you want a 'private school', then that is what it should be, a privately funded school. NOT a private school subsidized by govt spending. If that happens to make the majority of private schools unfeasible and forces more children in to the public system so be it, the boost to public school income from not needing to split their funding with private sector will more than make up the difference.
                                                    Next up we need to look at doing the same for private health care before we turn in to America.

                                                    It's not only Western countries. I taught in a non-Western country for a year and it was extremely corrupt and extremely unprofessional. Interestingly, this had nothing to do with leftism, but rather a character flaw of that particular culture.

                                                    it's funny reading comments like this when i went to several public schools and only had a single marxist teacher. and he was just a substitute. the only politics most of my teachers cared about was going on strike to get paid more. and that was more about being selfish than any sort of political ideology.

                                                    Maybe it's just that your viewpoints aren't supported by the facts and evidence taught at schools? Plus, you wanting kids to be homeschooled shows that *you* want them to be indoctrinated.

                                                    true sharp , school is just a indoctrination center - school is suppose to prepare kids for the real world All it does is shield them from it - kids are born creative but schools they destroy passion for learning and curiosity - kids are actually dumbed down at school

                                                  Tag on the truth of the article at the end. “Funded by school fees and loans” enough said a non story. All of Government schools funding is state driven and the macro decisions to fix or improve facilities lies with the Headmasters or principles and school committees themselves. That’s where the questions need to be asked about leaking rooves etc?

                                                    @Hamish Davidson Although I haven't fully looked into how this would work, I envision a claiming-style system whereby there's an "educational standard" similar to a "living standard" above which we aim to have our public (and conforming private) schools sitting. Money is doled out in real-time similarly to welfare, depending on the needs of the school in relation to the educational standard. The standard should as its highest value put individual student learning. Funding is requested from the pool through claims. For example, a school specifically for the physically disabled may reasonably require more funding compared to others to implement ease-of-access ramps, etc. Since the pool is finite, the standard would aim to result in equal student-learning potential between all schools. Any additional advantage in student-learning potential would be paid for by parents by attending a private school. There should be no reason to expect one public school to be more advantageous than another by virtue of funding alone. Just an idea.

                                                    thelittlegumnut So do you suggest equal funding per student or school. Because both of those have their obvious flaws. As I said before the 1800 sampled schools by the ABC armchair journalists average 62 students each. The pictures showing electrical wiring and holes in the roof are typical grandstanding. We all know these items should be fixed ASAP and schools should have emergency budgets, but why aren’t these schools getting their money or why are they spending in the wrong places.

                                                    @Hamish Davidson Well thanks for pointing out the dodgy reporting. Much better than simply picking on someone's grammar. I want to know what you think the purpose was behind the ABC portraying this story in such a way. If you have time.

                                                    Having said that, my primary concern is where money is directed. Should funding be equally distributed to all schools, regardless of the state they're in? Or, should there be a standard "weighting" that governs how much a school is entitled to relative to other schools? I'd argue that at a certain level of wealth, additional funding begins to have less of an effect, until eventually it plateaus and becomes akin to worthless spoiling of children. To believe that giving equal amounts of money at different points along this "effect line" has an equal effect seems internally contradictory to me. And since an equal effect (or fairness) is the supposed ultimate goal of equal monetary distribution, equal monetary distribution fails at achieving fairness.

                                                    thelittlegumnut Actually poor grammar is probably a symptom of improper spending in education. This ABC report cherry picks facts and then bundles them together to make its sound dramatic. 4 private schools who teach 13000 students are quite large schools at an average 3250 students each. The lower group they pick of 1800 schools with 107000 students indicate that some of the schools are closed or have no students with an average student population of 62 each. So something is amiss here. Again each school that has inadequate facilities in disrepair are funded by State governments and the Principles are directly responsible for spending and budgets. All supposedly audited annually. I would suggest a study into the misspending at public schools may be a more accurate survey to perform.

                                                    @day spoiler these school get the same per head as government schools ?
                                                    Not these really wealthy ones, with the exception of a tiny number in the catholic sector that oddly seem frequented by the children of catholic politicians.
                                                    They get about 1/3->1/4 what a public, community catholic or "community christian" school gets.
                                                    The press keeps conflating two things - the enormous sums of public money that goes to "non-elite" private schools, and the enormous wealth based on parent (non fee) donations and bequests of "elite" schools.
                                                    That makes better click bait, but neither is fixable because the "non-elite" private schools have parents who pay tax and who are not much better off on average than public schools, and equity perhaps demands they get funding.
                                                    The elite ones will remain elite because, like universities, their money is theirs to do what they like with and they could survive without public money with modest fee increases (about 10% for the very richest) anyway.
                                                    So sure, scrap funding for the elite schools, fine, but that will fix absolutely nothing in the bigger picture for public schools unless politicians want to start a war with a third of tax paying parents and grandparents they probably will not win.
