ACT parents heartened by Gonski announcement

The ACT Council of Parents and Citizens Associations, the peak body for ACT public school parents, welcomes the announcement last night by the Federal Government of their commitment to needs-based school funding.

"School funding must absolutely be based on the needs of students," said Council President, John Haydon. "There needs to be a re-balancing of school funding in Australia."

"We are heartened by this announcement, and look forward to hearing the details of the Government's plan."
