Type of paper: Abstract refereed

School 'choice' and the Australian government's schools funding models (SES and alternatives) will be considered in the context of government policy in late 2004. Included will be an analysis at the ABS collectors district level of type of secondary school attended (government, Catholic, other non government) by family income (low, medium and high - roughly equal thirds for all Australian secondary school students in 2001) for the Penrith SLA and other geographic areas. PBI (Prometheus Business Intelligence) software will be used for analysis and presentation.
