The Gonski Review was the most comprehensive investigation of the way our schools are funded in almost 40 years.

Headed by respected businessman David Gonski, it found that too many children were being denied the education they needed due to a lack of resources.

What did the Gonski Review recommend?

The Gonski review recommended that schools be funded according to the needs of their students and what was required to educate each one of them to a high standard.

Each school would get a base level of Commonwealth and state funding, plus additional money or loadings to take into account the school’s size and location and the individual needs of students (such as whether they are from a disadvantaged background or have a disability).

Keep Gonski: Contact your local Coalition MP

With Mike Baird’s retirement from politics, the future of Gonski school funding in NSW just became less certain.

Soon there will be a new premier who will select a new cabinet and set a new policy agenda. We need Federation members and Gonski supporters to call NSW Coalition members and deliver the message that the people of NSW expect to see needs-based funding as a continuing part of the Government’s platform.

The most direct way to get this message across is for a large number of people to call the offices of Coalition MPs and MLC members and tell them that as a NSW voter, you expect them to support Gonski needs-based funding in NSW.

Call for Baird government's school funding legacy to continue

The finest way to recognise and acknowledge retiring NSW Premier Mike Baird will be for the successor leadership to continue the state Coalition government’s commitment and full, long-term funding support for Gonski, teacher organisations said in a joint statement today.

"Teachers and principals across NSW today acknowledge the fine work and legacy of Mr Baird and his Government in enabling opportunity and high standards for all school students and communities in the state stemming from their full policy commitment to Gonski funding," NSW Teachers Federation Acting President Denis Fitzgerald, NSW Secondary Principals' Council President Chris Presland and Primary Principals' Association President Phil Seymour said.

TIMSS report confirms Gonski findings

The 2016 TIMSS results confirm the Gonski review findings that there are huge inequities in Australian education, NSW Teachers Federation President Maurie Mulheron said today.

"The Gonski review found that significant investment in education was needed to improve outcomes," Mr Mulheron said, "and while the TIMSS tests were done in 2015, by that time only 9 per cent of Gonski funding had been rolled out to schools."

"The bulk of the Gonski funding is due to be delivered to schools in 2018 and 2019, but before the full program can be delivered to schools and start improving results for all students, the Federal Government wants to scrap this much-needed funding model."
