New funding for long term benefit children announced in 2016 budget

Liz Gordon made this Official Information request to Ministry of Education

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Liz Gordon to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Liz Gordon

Dear Ministry of Education,

Please provide the following information under the OIA 1982.

In the Minister’s published speech to the National Cross-Sectional forum on 27 May this year, she noted:

To this end, Budget 2016 targets an additional $43.2 million over four years to state and state-integrated schools educating up to 150,000 students from long-term welfare-dependent families.

These students are one of the largest identifiable groups within our education system that is most at risk of educational underachievement.

Please answer the following questions related to this announcement:

1. What data matching approach will be used to discover how many students from long term welfare dependent families attend each school, so that the funding can be allocated?
2. How is ‘long term welfare dependent families’ defined?
3. What legal basis allows for data-matching for such a purpose?
4. What is the per capita sum that is estimated to be provided for each eligible child per annum?
5. We gather from the Minister’s statement that the $42.1 million (as it shows later in the Minister’s speech) includes: “$15.3 million for an extra 1250 students to access in-class support.”
6. This leaves a net $26.8 million for allocation to the long term welfare dependent families. Is that figure roughly correct?
7. This then indicates an annual sum of around $6.7 million available for allocation. Is that figure roughly correct?
8. This appears to translate to an annual sum per long term welfare dependent student of just under $45. Is that figure roughly correct?
9. What is the total estimated cost to the Ministry of Education in developing, testing, implementing and administering this scheme over the four years of its life?

Yours faithfully,

Dr Liz Gordon
