Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 2 Hansard (21 February) . . Page.. 491..
MR SESELJA: I thank the minister for his non-answer. Minister, do you and the government support ongoing indexation of funding for non-government schools and, if so, at what level?
DR BOURKE: As I said, the essence of Gonski is to develop a transparent system of school funding that is equitable and fair; a system which is based on supporting students in need. This is what the ACT government supports.
MR SPEAKER: Mr Doszpot, a supplementary question.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, will you commit to no school losing funding in the ACT as a result of this review in both real and actual terms?
DR BOURKE: I thank the member for his question. It is difficult to know what the outcome of the review will be because it has not been accepted or agreed to by the federal government-therefore how can we know what the effects of that review will be?-although I am pleased with the review's recommendation that no single jurisdiction should be disadvantaged as a result of any future changes.
Education-Murrumbidgee education and training centre
MS HUNTER: My question is to the Minister for Education and Training and relates to the Murrumbidgee education and training centre. Minister, was the community-based outreach program of the Murrumbidgee education and training centre established and formalised in time for commencement of semester 1 this year?
DR BOURKE: I thank the member for her question. That is a particularly specific question and I will have to take it on notice.
MS HUNTER: Supplementary question, Mr Speaker.
MR SPEAKER: Yes, Ms Hunter.
MS HUNTER: Minister, is this program designed in accordance with recommendation 12.8 of the Human Rights Commission's youth justice system report relating to conditional day release for the purposes of education, training and employment?
DR BOURKE: I thank the member for her question. Once again, this is a particularly specific question and I will need to take it on notice.
MRS DUNNE: Supplementary question, Mr Speaker.
MR SPEAKER: Yes, Mrs Dunne.
MRS DUNNE: Minister, do you know where the Murrumbidgee education centre is and what it does?
