Gillard to respond to Gonski review

THE Federal Government's response to the Gonski Review into school funding is expected to be revealed by Prime Minister Julia Gillard in her address to the National Press Club today.

Among other things, the review recommended an extra $5billion be spent on schools and called for an overhaul of the current funding model.

Education Minister Peter Garrett has already announced the Government will move to scrap the model but has yet to outline alternative plans.
