    Canberra demands 'please explain' from Andrews government on schools funding

    The federal government has demanded an explanation from Victoria over plans to "reprioritise" tens of millions of dollars in education funding – including Commonwealth money designed to make public schools more "independent".
    Labor costings released on the eve of November's election suggest the Andrews government will shift $13.5 million worth of funds from Tony Abbott's so-called Independent Public Schools initiative - a state-federal deal signed with the former Napthine government to encourage greater autonomy in schools.
    A further $60 million will be also redirected from a $563 million state-based fund to improve teaching quality, tailor support to students from disadvantaged backgrounds, and provide for growth of non-government schools - but in both cases, it is not clear where the money will go.
    The changes have sparked a "please explain" from Federal Education Minister Christopher Pyne, who wrote to his Victorian counterpart James Merlino in mid-December seeking "urgent advice" on the matter.
