End Attendance Based Funding

Respond to our survey to tell the story of how Attendance Based Funding affects your school/context

The NT Government introduced the "Effective Enrolment" model of school funding in 2014/15. This based funding on attendance, rather than enrolment. It is highly inequitable, and has led to system-wide failures. It is the position of the AEU NT that this model of funding needs to end and a stronger model be embraced. We refuse to refer to it as "Effective Enrolment" as it is neither effective, nor based on enrolment. Instead we have termed it exactly what it is: Attendance Based Funding (ABF)!
