The Report For Disadvantaged Children – The Problem

The long-awaited review of funding for the school has been completed and a report has been released by a prominent Australian Council led by David Gonsky AC.

In this presentation, I have focused on only 3 chapters on equality and inequality, as well as my comments on children with disabilities.

I also concentrated on Sydney’s West Side schools as I live in the area and attended the West Slum Catholic School

before my children moved to an independent school.

The panel should be congratulated because the Report is comprehensive and well-researched and makes a number of

recommendations that, if implemented, could to some extent improve the educational outcomes of Australian children.

I am sure, however, that the Report, (for whatever reason) does not recognize the “pale elephant” in the classroom

and that parents are the first caregivers of their children. This is the foundation of many of Australia’s independent

schools, including PARED (Parents for Education) schools, which are academically superior year by year and do not

offer scholarships to provide bright children who will carry general marks even if they do not choose. School

Schools that recognize parents as the child’s first caregiver work with parents, so the child receives the same message

and expectations at home and at school. This applies not only to academic expectations but also to discipline

When parents imagine a child not only in the present moment but in the end, they focus on developing a strong

character in the child by modeling themselves and expecting the child to show human qualities such as sincerity and

joy. , generosity, patience, gratitude, respect, honesty, and service to others. This means that it is normal for a child to

do his or her best in school and other activities, to respect school property, to care for the feelings of others, and to

help the poor. This is not just about the child’s trained character and its socio-economic status. These types of

schools operate in countries where most of us live on the poverty line as far as we know, for example, the Philippines

and these children are still emerging as strong, independent young adults, full of gratitude and determination to

enjoy life. being among the poorest of the poor. One such school, Southridge (Manila – Philippines), is running a

program where daytime students are used to funding daytime schooling, who have to go to a low-resource public school

and a daytime university sign. Students are indeed superior to students who are financially superior.


Socio-economic status and academic performance

Surridge’s experience shows us that socioeconomic status should not have a negative impact on academic

performance. In fact, the main part of the Gonsky panel’s concept of the equation is the belief that the basic skills and

abilities of students that enable them to succeed in school are not distributed differently among children with

different socio-economic status, ethnicity, or language, or where they are. to live or go to school. achieve at school in

the right conditions and with the help they need.

The key to success is whether or not children have the right conditions and assistance, and this is often due to the

lack of social security programs in Australia, which is not related to socio-economic status. For decades, the children

The Philippines. Parents approve of education as the key to a good life. So, Southridge is the success of initiatives like day

school. The parents of several children from West Suburban High School will receive scholarships for their children

to attend high school.
