Federal Election 2022

April 2022

 

Independent schools are a key part of the education landscape and sit alongside government and Catholic schools in contributing to Australian society and the safety, learning and wellbeing of our children.

Independents Schools Australia and ISQ have released a joint Federal Election Statement.

Fundamental to this statement is our call for major political parties and all candidates to support five key priority areas for the independent schooling sector:

  • Wellbeing and mental health
  • National reform priorities
  • Consequences of funding reform
  • Regional boarding schools
  • Capital funding.
