Independent Schools Welcome new education minister

Independent Schools Victoria Chief Executive, Ms Michelle Green, today congratulated Mr Dan Tehan on his appointment as federal Minister for Education in the new Morrison ministry.

‘We know Mr Tehan as a strong advocate for Independent schools in his electorate,
and look forward to continuing discussions on the proposed new funding model for
non-government schools,’ Ms Green said.

‘We believe that with continued goodwill, the government can arrive at a system that
ensures fair treatment for all students, no matter which school they attend.

‘Critically, there must be no “special deals” favouring one sector over another.

‘We thank Senator Simon Birmingham for the professional and calm way he has
conducted the discussions so far, and we wish him success in his new portfolio.’
