New SES Model and the Choice and Affordability Fund
At this stage there is still nothing more to announce regarding the Choice and Affordability Fund and how it will be used and administered. We have made enquiries with the Minister’s office but have been told this matter is yet to be resolved.
Erik will be attending a consultation meeting next week, looking at the new model for calculating parent’s ‘capacity to contribute’ and therefore what their SES level should be. This work will be very important for the funding future of schools and will be a significant focus for the Department of Education this year.
