    Default Do you agree with the government funding of non-government schools?

    if so, why, why not? please give your view?

    Other private schools? Yes!

    No, I think they should be focusing that funding on public schools.

    Parents of kids who go to private schools still pay taxes so why shouldn't there be funding to both types of schools from the government?

    Every kid should get a set amount per year from the government paid direct to whatever school their parents send them too. Then for higher risk kids/special needs they should get additional funding. But why should a kid get nothing cause their parents pay fees. Also if private schools got nothing the fees would be out of reach most middle class families- therefore putting pressure into already over crowded public schools. We arent rich (nor are we poor) my husband is a teacher and I am a nurse- we have 4 kids with another on the way. The area we live has shocking public schools so our kids will go private- without government support of the school there is no way our kids would go private (they are going to a low fee Christian school) so $2-3k per child prep to year 12. Times by 5 though is a lot of cash.
