THE state government is touting a $100 million increase in funding for NSW public schools next year as part of their Resource Allocation Model.
However, more than 20 schools in the Fairfield and Cabramatta electorates will lose funds as part of this model, angering MPs.
Some government schools in the Fairfield electorate will lose between $4993 and $48,350, while in the Cabramatta electorate some schools will lose between $1993 and $48,767.
Fairfield MP Guy Zangari said he was furious.
"Education is one of our most valuable resources, yet the O'Farrell government is set on placing even more barriers between our children and the education they deserve," he said.
Cabramatta MP Nick Lalich said the Gonski funding reforms were meant to allocate the greatest resources to students in greatest need.
"The Gonski reforms were intended to help our children, not leave them worse off," Mr Lalich said.
"I challenge Mr O'Farrell to front up to schools like the Les Powell School and justify these cuts to local parents."
A spokesman for Education Minister Adrian Piccoli confirmed a drop in equity funding in the Cabramatta electorate next year but said Fairfield and Smithfield would receive an overall increase in equity funding.
Mr Piccoli said the Liberals had consistently supported the Gonski Report's key view that "every child should have access to the best possible education, regardless of where they live, the income of their family or the school they attend".
"The resource allocation model delivers on this by distributing funding to public schools in NSW on a needs basis," he said.
