Government schools overfunded?

a report published by the Australian Productivity Commission last month suggested government funding to non-government schools had declined slightly, in real terms. The commission said government spending per student in non-government schools was $6850 in 2008-09. This represented an average annual decrease in real terms of 1.6 per cent since 2004-05.

The commission calculated that federal, state and territory government recurrent spending per student in government schools was $13,544 in 2008-09. This represented an average annual increase in real terms of 1.2 per cent since 2004-05.
