PARENTS will receive up to $820 for every child they have at school - paid directly into their bank account next month - as part of a federal
government overhaul to combat rising education costs.
In another sign the government is preparing a Robin Hood Budget that targets the rich but helps battling families, Julia Gillard will announce the
means-tested payment today.
The Sunday Times can reveal the payment will replace the existing education tax refund, which forced parents to keep receipts to prove they had spent
thousands of dollars on computers and school uniforms before claiming a rebate for education expenses.
Article excerpt from:
This is more than just another 'Robin Hood' plan by the increasingly unpopular Gillard government to buy more votes; it is more about saddling the
Australian taxpayer with more debt that the government spends with hard AUD borrowed from the Reserve Bank of Australia (our Fed equivalent).
It is also about expanding
the population of children born to single moms, further taxing the welfare system even more - it is no surprise,
fits in with the vote-buyer scheme, or ploy to retain office at all costs.
The monetary payment for schoolchildren is in theory 'a leg up to the struggling', but in practice, it is government fiscal misappropriation.
When I was in school until five years ago, I did not need a financial handout to further help my studies, as I was self-sufficient.
What do you think?
