Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by Queensland Senator Penny Allman-Payne (Greens), which means it failed.

Motion text

That the Australian Education Amendment (2023 Capital Funding) Regulations 2023, made under the Australian Education Act 2013, be disallowed [F2023L01064].

What do these Regulations do?

According to Senator Allman-Payne:

These regulations would increase the capital funding indexation percentage for block grant authorities for non-government schools in 2023, thereby increasing federal funding to capital works for private schools by $21.2 million, up to a total annual sum of $215.7 million. This disallowance would maintain the indexation for capital works for non-government schools at its current rate. This doesn't mean that money is being ripped away from private schools. They would still receive an annual sum of $194 million among numerous other buckets of cash that they have access to. The purpose of this disallowance is simply for the government to prioritise helping our struggling public schools before pouring more money into the private-school system.
