I might be coming into this thread a little late and apologies if this has already been said but why on earth should we expect the government to give us money each year to help with the cost of school.
Call me crazy, but isnt schooling and the associated costs just another normal and expected cost of having children?
Id spend more money per year on nappies for my daughter when she was an infant then i would pay to start her up at school. Should i also be getting a payment from the government to help with this?
In my opinion, schooling costs are just another normal cost of having children. Sure i would imagine that it would be difficult for some families on a low income to be able to afford but that doesnt mean i support a blanket payment across the board for all families.
Perhaps a rebate on school expenses would be more appropriate to those families who are on income support payments and the rest of us could just maybe suck it up a little bit and get on with the job of providing for our children without expecting the government to pay for everything.
I can almost guarantee that those people who claim they rely on that money to start htei kids in school would actually find a way to come up with the money if it wasnt given as a free hand out.

I'd rather see classrooms come fully stocked with stationary for every student, a school uniform shop where kids are given a full uniform, excursions fully paid for so no child misses out on these vital moments in their schooling.
Give me the above and I'll gladly wave the bonus goodbye, for now if it means even a few kids aren't being deprived of their basic rights within education, then great.
