The Department of Education is putting a whopping $475.5 million into our schools. Fantastic news for Australia’s education system. Every school is different and every child has different needs. The Empowering Local Schools initiative plans to get down to the nitty-gritty and find out how students can flourish. Let’s hope that for many schools this will mean a better Arts education (we know education in the Arts assists students to do well in other facets of their education). If more money is spent on upgrading school facilities, easily available counselling programs, extra curricular activities, and better creative programs, it will benefit our youth directly and will be therefore money well spent.
