Abstract

School funding has always been a vexed matter in Australian political life; indeed wrangling over school funding in relation to government and private schooling was described back in 1977 as ‘Australia’s oldest, deepest, most poisonous debate’. Recently this ‘poisonous debate’ has been particularly potent. Helping to emphasise this point, in 2016 an extraordinary event happened—a national education minister of the conservative Liberal Government admitted on national television that some private schools in the nation are overfunded.
