The figures don't lie

Governments own figures show public schools in five states and territories will STILL be below SRS (underfunded) in a decade under Turnbull's Gonski Light plan
And of course Greens negotiating on Gonski and Hinch likely voting with them  but 80/20 Fed funding priv/pub SRS split renders it neither sector blind nor needs based! 

And then there is this!

An inner-west school associated with the Church of Scientology will receive a 75% increase in Federal Government funding over the next 10 years, according to the government’s school funding estimator.

The Athena School in Newtown, an independent co-ed kindergarten to grade 10 school, will receive $7,124 per student in federal funding this year.

The funding is almost triple that of the most highly-funded government school in the area, Newtown High School of the Performing Arts, which will receive $2,586 per student this year.

But the funding is set to skyrocket to $12,490 per student over the next ten years. The increase of 75% is markedly higher than the 59% increase in funding for government schools in the same area.
