Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2013 Week 7 Hansard (16 May) . . Page.. 2187..


Education—Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students (Question No 108)

Mr Wall asked the Minister for Education and Training, upon notice, on 11 April 2013:

(1) What was the total amount of funding provided for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students enrolled in ACT (a) government and (b) non-government schools.

(2) What percentage of funding identified in part (1) is provided by the (a) Commonwealth and (b) ACT Governments.

Ms Burch: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) (a) During 2011-12, the total amount of funding provided for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students enrolled in ACT public schools from both the ACT and Australian Governments was approximately $19 million. This includes $4.7 million of specifically targeted programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

(b) During 2011-12, the total amount of funding provided for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students enrolled in ACT non-government schools from both the ACT and Australian Governments was approximately $2.2 million. Currently there is no specifically targeted funding for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in non-government schools.

(2) Existing education funding arrangements are complex and reflect significantly different funding obligations for the Australian and ACT Governments in funding public schools and non-government schools.

The ACT Government currently has primary funding responsibility for ACT public schools providing around 90 per cent of total government funding and the Australian Government has primary responsibility for funding non government schools, currently providing around 75 per cent of total government funding.
