The PPTA want to close the door on schools wanting to integrate.
I think that to legislate to do that would result in a rush while the legislation was processed. I also think that it is wrong. Private schools are very cheap on the taxpayer, are needed as part of the network in some cities and in some cases are either innovative or fulfil specific cultural needs. Exterminating them or integrated schools might sound great rhetoric but it doesn’t make good policy sense.
Just to make it clear I think the government decision to increase the subsidies for private schools was wrong. To do it in this budget by cutting the funding of disabled kids and night classes was evil.
But the real issue is why some integrated schools are allowed to insist on donations well beyond the dues set out in their integration agreements with the crown. It was an issue in this post on Education Ownership.
