State School Funding Certainty

Our Liberal National Government is strongly committed to supporting state schools across Australia.

Commonwealth funding for all Government schools is growing from $7.4 billion in 2018 to $10.8 billion in 2023 to $13.7 billion in 2029. This represents an average per student increase of 6.3 per cent each year over 2020 to 2023.

There is Commonwealth funding certainty for state schools locked in under legislation. The only funding uncertainty comes from the state governments who have not committed to funding their schools.
