The model we are proposing, net all of the changes in terms of providing consistent application of SES scores around the country, will actually put in place growing funding for Catholic education. That is the point that we have emphasised time and time again. People may wish to create scare campaigns and use scare tactics, but the truth is there is $3.4 billion of additional funding growth that will come into Catholic education in the course of the next 10 years. That is net all of the different changes to the funding model to provide consistency, to provide fairness and to treat all non-government schools across the country equally, according to the same methodology and the same formula, not special deals that might be carved out for one sector, one system or one state, like those opposite sought to do.
