Statement by Mr Stephen Elder, Executive Director, Catholic Education Commission of Victoria:

The Catholic Education Commission of Victoria Ltd (CECV) acknowledges the election of Scott Morrison as leader of the Liberal Party and Prime Minister.

For the past 15 months Catholic school families have demonstrated their deep concern at flawed school funding policies, as seen at the Batman and Longman by-elections.

We look forward to a new approach from government and have issued a number of papers over the past 18 months that will be able to assist Mr Morrison and his education minister.

The CECV looks forward to working with Mr Morrison to replace school SES scores with a better measure of school needs – as recommended by the National School Resourcing Board – as a matter of priority and a recognition of the importance of choice in education for Catholic school parents.
