Gladstone's best to worst funded schools revealed

IT IS one of the biggest worries of every parent: is my child getting a good education?

Like it or not, money goes a long way to a better education.

But new figures from NAPLAN reveal some kids in the Gladstone region have a lot more money invested in their education than others.

>>Gladstone's best to most struggling schools revealed

Schools have four funding sources, which are the "Australian Government", "State Government", "fees, charges and parent contributions", and "other private sources".

Governments win or lose elections on their election policies.

According to NAPLAN's website, a school's special circumstances and its location can decide its state and federal funding.

But the overwhelming trend among Gladstone's schools is that a great parent contribution pushes private schools up the top of the list.
