Published on 14th March, it reveals that non-government schools save taxpayers at least $4.59 billion each year in recurrent funding. Catholic schools in NSW alone represent a $500 million annual saving for taxpayers.

It also shows that if all government and non-government schools received their full funding entitlement under the Australian Education Act 2013, savings to taxpayers would be $6.31 billion each year in recurrent funding.

These savings include $2.04 billion for primary students and $4.27 billion for secondary students. Catholic schools make up $2.96 billion of the total amount saved, and Independent schools $3.35 billion.
