Even prior to Gonski 2.0 I am sure many Principals were already spending part of their one line budgets creating these flexible learning arrangements.
I had to allow myself a small chuckle over the the current Prime Minister almost crowing about Gonski 2.0 being needs-based funding. Maybe the federal politicians of today's Australia cannot recall or did not know that in the period 1972-1974 the famous Labor Prime Minister Gough Whitlam commissioned Professor Karmel to carry out an investigation into school education across Australia. The resulting Karmel report recommended needs-based funding. Another example of the circularity of educational change that has haunted me all my professional life with its consequential waste of money on ill-conceived change or change that doesn't last. Enough already with this blast from the past. May Gonski 2.0 make appropriate learning more available to every Australian school student.
May the Force be with you!
