To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives Assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that:

The level of per capita funding to non-government schools in NSW is at such a deplorably low level so as to be discriminatory to non-government schoolchildren .

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that Parliament will require the NSW Government, as a condition of educational funding, to increase the per capita level of funding in non-government schools to a level of 30 per cent of the cost of educating a child in the New South Wales State government school system at an equivalent level. This increase to be an interim measure towards the ending of discrimination of funding non-government schoolchildren.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
