The Teachers Federation is urging NSW Premier, Mike Baird, to act on Gonski funding following his re-election over the weekend.
One political party’s plan to make Gonski funding more equitable has angered some prominent independent school bodies.
Gonski funding is helping schools implement and maintain programs that are making a significant difference to student performance.
The new laws will mean that schools will be allocated funds according to “student need” rather than across-the-board.
Principals have pulled the government up on the inequitable levels of funding granted to public schools.
A leading voice in global education has called upon governments around the world to keep education free and in the hands of the public sector.
