Hi Martin,
In Australia, it is the State that are responsible for the approval or
otherwise of non-State Schools. In Queensland, independent schools must
undergo a second stage approval to also receive funding approval. The
philosphy is not the issue, or so they say. It is the implementation of the
educational model and how it happens to make it fit within the State's
legislative framework that counts the most - along with suitable facilities,
resources, insurances, incorporated status, local government approval,
business plan including budgetary projections for at least 3 years,
facilities' plans, management / administration plans, Staffing, enrolment
projections and a curriculum. Our next "assessment" for funding happens in
6 days (the third in 4 years).
