The education model is funded in 2 ways - per student and capital works. The student part should be for every child regardless of the setting but governments paying for private schools buildings, pools and orchestra pits is totally abhorrent.

I do get that it takes the burden off the public system but look, if the government increased the spending per public school student by $100 per year, to cover costs of new air conditioners, soap, better art supplies, and other things that are lacking, does this mean they would equally have to increase for private school students, just to keep it fair? What would the private schools need it for exactly? I just don't think you can say it's equitable to give everyone the same, when not everyone has the same needs.
By this token you could say that everyone should receive welfare, everyone should pay the same Tax rate, everyone should be eligible for pretty much anything..
Maybe the funding for private schools should be means tested - some parents obviously have less income than others. I'm aware that not all parents who send their children to non-government schools are super wealthy. But the ones that are would not pull their kids out for $8000 a year.

I dont know how it works across Australia, but in SA, we recieve funding per student based on the level of disadvantage. So every student starts off with the same base rate - then we receive extra funding per student for diabilities. ESL. Indigenous students. Low SES. Rural students. So a school with low disadvantage in a high SES area receives less funding per student than a school with higher disadvantages. Its a great system & is very fair.

Taxpayers fund private school orchestra pits and swimming pools...
I don't believe government should fund any works for privately owned infrastructure they should only be up keeping their own infrastructure.
