742  Senator Brown: To move—That the Senate—

(a) notes:

(i) the high level of community anger being generated by the Government’s new funding formula for primary and secondary schools which will see some elite private schools granted a massive Commonwealth funding increase, and

(ii) the call by the Australian Education Union and the Australian Council of State Schools Organisations for the Federal Government to pass a ‘schools funding continuity and stability bill’; and

(b) supports such a bill, which would give the same level of Commonwealth funding for private and public schools for the year 2001 as they have for the year 2000.
