Are private schools receiving too much Government funding?

    Might be good when reporting funding levels to clearly state that this is recurrent funding and when doing comparatives factor in capital funding received as well. The independent sector need to also fund capital expenditure and the associated debt from their operations, something the public sector does not need to worry about. With balances reporting, it is the not-so-struggling public sector.

    Might also be helpful to point out that until recently, this figure would be only considering Federal funding (the majority funding for Private Schools) and ignoring State funding (the majority funding for Public schools).
    Apples with apples please...
