Reforming school funding

A report making the case for wholescale reform of how schools are funded in Australia was released (July 1st) by the Foundation for Young Australians.

The report, Resourcing Schools in Australia, recommends
that all schools be funded under a single framework in contrast with the current system where the states mostly fund public education, and the Commonwealth finances non government schools. 


Foundation for Young Australians

FYA,  Foundation for Young Australians' Education division, has a long history of advocating on key youth issues relating to education and wellbeing. Drawing on quality, evidenced-based research, we have promoted new initiatives, policies and discussions that can have a significant and lasting impact on the life chances and outcomes of young Australians.

Key Resources - Using the Catalogue

Use the Library catalogue to find primary resources such as books, exam papers, specific journals and audio-visual items. Use the databases and indexes to identify and locate individual articles in journals.

For advice in using these tools, use the HELP! Link, including the Library Skills Online tutorials

Keywords and descriptors - when searching catalogues and databases, be ready to use a wide range of terms, both general and precise. For example:

Education Teaching Learning Schools Curriculum Pedagogy
Literacy Language Spelling Writing Reading Speaking
Numeracy Mathematics Maths Math Science Constructivism


If your search returns too many items, use narrower or combinations of terms. If you do not find enough, try broader terms. The thesauri listed below can help your find broader, narrower and related terms.
