Mark Coulton welcomes funding estimator for Parkes Electorate schools

Thursday, 11 May 2017

Parkes Electorate parents, teachers, principals and school communities will benefit from a new schools’ funding estimator to see exactly how they stand to benefit from the Coalition Government’s new $18.6 billion needs-based schools funding plan, the Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said.
Mr Coulton said the new online estimator showed that school funding in regional and remote Australia will grow from $3.9 billion in 2017 to $7.2 billion in 2027 — this is an increase of 84 per cent.
“This new estimator will give parents, teachers and principals the information they need about our needs-based funding plan to make long-term plans for the future of each child and each school.
“Our plan invests an additional amount of needs-based funding into Parkes Electorate schools over the next four years. We’re delivering long-term funding certainty for schools and communities and ensuring everybody is treated fairly and equitably.
“Our plan factors in the background, family life, levels of disability and socioeconomic status of each student and school to ensure funding is truly needs-based and fair.
Minister for Education and Training Senator Simon Birmingham said the Coalition Government’s plan would transform Australian schools. 
“Our plan will set students on the path to academic excellence and achieve real needs-based funding for students from all backgrounds, in every town and city, in every region and state, in every classroom,” Minister Birmingham said. 
“We’ve been open and upfront all along that more than 9,000 schools are set to receive significant funding boosts according to their need but that also means some schools will have their funding levels frozen or reduced.
