Abstract

A new report from the Centre for Independent Studies described Gonski funding for schools as a “fantasy” and made three proposals for school funding:

1.Hand over full control for school policy and funding to the states.

2.Establish a school voucher system, which provides funding directly to students rather than schools.

3.Create charter schools – these are publicly-funded but privately-run schools.
