The Albanese government has announced spending of $28 billion for schools in Central Australia, meeting the minimum education funding benchmark for the first time in a decade. 

However, the Australian Education Union claims that more needs to be done to bridge the gap between public and private education, calling for an additional $6.5bn a year in public school funding. 

The budget also outlines $254 million to improve Indigenous education outcomes, including $38.4 million for children in remote areas, and $11 million for national Indigenous languages. $9.3 million will also be allocated to address workforce shortages.
