In the best interests of the child? Costs of primary education for dependents of international students and other visa holders in Victoria - Aug 2012

This report looks at the policy of charging school fees for the dependents of international students and other visa holders to attend government schools, which is of particular concern to the Commission as it conflicts with Australia’s obligations under article 28(1)(a) of the Convention on the Rights of the Child to make primary education compulsory and freely available.

 

An issues paper, Costs of school education for visa holders in Victoria, was released in July 2011 and encouraged people affected by these tuition fees to tell the Commission their story.
