National Catholic Education Commission (NCEC) Federal Election Report Card

Below you will find a federal election report card assessing the responses from the major political parties on education priorities, which has been released by National Catholic Education Commission (NCEC).

The report card assesses the Coalition, Labor and Green’s responses to the following priorities:

  • Genuine school choice through fair funding and ensuring affordable contributions from families
  • Enabling faith-based education through religious protections
  • Improving capital funding
  • Support for delivering national priorities such as quality teaching, early childhood education, mental health and wellbeing programs and Closing the Gap initiatives for Aboriginal and Torres Islander students

As you will see from the scorecard, both the Liberal National Coalition and Labor are on par in addressing our priorities, particularly on school choice.
