Why the Audit Commission erred over the Gonski Report

The text of David Gonski's address at Melbourne University on 21 May 2014 on the Abbott Government's Budget response to the Gonski Report.  'Leaving the entirety of a state’s education to a state could lead to a situation of different educational systems (with different aspirations and attributions etc) in different parts of Australia. We felt this was undesirable and indeed if one wanted to see complexity, it was the multiplicity of funding systems that existed in Australia at the time we did our review – all resulted from different parts of Australia doing different things based on different formulae. We believed as a country we needed some uniformity and that policy should be aimed at such.'
