Thanks, John - that makes sense of it. It makes our figures look very out of kilter with the rest of the world - 32% in private schools which are extremely heavily subsidised by the federal govt, plus 20-25% from their state govt, plus whatever fees they want to set. It boils down to the fact that there is not one single "private" school in Australia which is not heavily subsidised by a combination state and federal govt funding. This 32% therefore has 40% more to spend on their students than govt schools.

As I said before I will be in Parliament House on Thursday in Canberra listening to what our esteemed leaders have to say about what they are planning for the upcoming budget and election.
