Labor's $250m promise to Catholic schools reveals a funding horror story.

Bill Shorten’s pledge comes as the latest in a series of deals on both sides of politics corrupting fair school funding plans.

Almost a year ago we thought that peace had been declared in the school funding wars. True, the Turnbull government’s “Gonski” school funding changes fall well short on many fronts but the government did try to bury the special deals that have dogged school funding for decades. After less than a year Labor has resurrected them in a planned gift of $250 million to Catholic schools in the first two years of a new Labor government.

Both sides of politics have done these deals in the past and they have always corrupted whatever fair school funding plan has been designed.

............

The board has a highly credible membership. Its report is seen as a potential threat by some sections of the Catholic school sector. The Shorten announcement positions the Labor party as having been pressured by Catholic sector interests into pre-empting the board’s report; and as preferring to play sectarian politics behind closed doors than to engaging in an open policy development policy.

Labor has apparently not been able to learn anything new. The difference this time around is that they might get an unwelcome judgment from an electorate that has, and one that expects something better.

To get a picture of the chaos that has emerged all you need is a computer and an internet connection to log onto the My School website. Find your local public school and add together its combined Australian and state government recurrent funding per student. Then go to the Naplan section, find a Catholic school enrolling similar students and check their combined government funding. In a surprising number of cases around Australia it is almost as high, if not higher than the public school – the one which must be open to all students. Oh, then add the extra Catholic school fee income.

What a disgraceful mess... http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

The funding of religious institutions should never be the role of government in a secular society.

Maybe Curly will be seeking to make savings by cutting the $250 Million of Federal funding for the Chaplaincy Program run by the evangelical Scripture Union. http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/Smiley_winknod.gif

Poor old Curly is trying hard to buy votes everywhere he possibly can chark. He is trying very hard to be everything to everyone. Too bloody stupid to realise that is impossible and never works. If the useless Turnbull and co had half a brain they could tear him to shreds over all his chopping and changing.

Funding religion, kow-towing to the 1400 major religions in the world means supporting the wealthiest, most corrupt people on the planet, and it is a useless, non-productive investment.
