The decision of the Gillard Government to provide extra funding to the Aboriginal students has attracted applause from the Indigenous Australians community. The announcement of the funding was made by the co-chair of National Congress of Australia's First Peoples, Jody Broun.
Jody Broun said, "We raised our concerns about the funding model. We have been informed by the Minister's office that the government is proposing to address this issue by providing a loading on a sliding scale to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students".
According to the announcement, additional 31,900 indigenous students will be provided with extra funding. The financial aid will definitely help aboriginals in improving their life styles. Good education background will bring good revenue to the families as well.
It has been reported that last year, the Government spent $4.7 billion over the education of aboriginals. Further announcement assures that in the coming times, more will be spent in the welfare of the students. However, the outcome of the extra funding is yet to be experienced. But, the announcement of the funding has definitely brought smiles to the aboriginal students.
