Increased Government Funding For Victorian Schools Good News

By Matt Hurlston

If you’re a first home buyer with a small family looking to invest in Carnegie real estate, you’ll be happy to know that the Gillard government has a dedicated plan towards increasing the funding for schools throughout Victoria each and every year.

Under the National Plan for School Improvement, there will be a boost of $3.5 billion to government schools over the next six years, and a further $630 million for the benefit of non-government schools.

Minister for school education and early childhood and youth Peter Garrett said in a statement released June 12 that the biggest increases will be going to schools that need them the most.

“This funding will help ensure every school has enough money to do its job and deliver a great education to all Victorian students,” Mr Garrett said in the release.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to deliver the biggest investment in Victorian education in generations.”

This is good news for families with young children considering moving to the state, with education being an important factor in a child’s development.
