New data confirms disability funding crisis, says AEU

A nationwide trial is being conducted to determine the real needs of schools for educating students with disability and will be used to determine funding from 2016.

Australian Education Union (AEU) federal president, Correna Haythorpe, said the Federal Government’s own data collection process revealed a shortfall in funding for students with disability and it was time it kept its election promise and eased the disability funding crisis in schools.

The AEU says preliminary reports have revealed “the true crisis” in disability education.
