Education Minister Simon Birmingham has made a commitment to get every school funded, including for children with disabilities, a policy which has sparked concerns about funding levels.
The Coalition has also announced a $5.8 million boost to primary and secondary school funding, as well as $100 million for community schools, with most schools slated to receive a boost in the next four years.
Mr Birmingham says funding will be distributed in the “best interest of students”.
Mr Birmingham told the ABC the Government would be looking to achieve funding levels “in line with the best interests of students in Australia”.
“We want to invest in schools that are delivering the highest quality outcomes,” he said.
Mr Bentley said the Government was committed to funding all schools, including those that had not received a major funding boost.
“That is the priority,” he told the program.
“We have set out that as the Government of Australia, we have the obligation to deliver for all Australians, regardless of their ability to pay.”
