Meeting with new Education Minister

The CSA Director of Public Policy met with the new Minister for Education and Youth, Hon Alan Tudge MP to discuss a range of issues and leave him with a copy of the Cardus Education Survey Australia research data.

During the meeting a number of issues were raised including:

  • Funding for distance education students
  • the need for greater access to capital funding
  • Funding for students in early learning centres
  • Establishment of a national data dashboard
  • Religious freedom

A copy of the letter to the Minister following the meeting is available below.

We also took the opportunity to invite the Minister to the Christian Schools National Policy Forum in May.
