#ShortNews: In Australia, Catholic primary schools face overhaul

Catholic primary schools in Victoria are facing one of the most significant overhauls in their 150-year history, with principals pushing to strip priests of their power over schools. The report, which was written by Australian Catholic University researchers, comes as parish priests in the Sale diocese have surrendered their power in schools.

This comes as the Catholic Education system faces criticism about transparency and funding, including in a 2016 report by the Victorian Auditor General. Victorian Catholic schools receive more than $2 billion a year in federal and state government funding.
