Education Minister stumbles through finer details on Chinese student scheme

A State Government scheme will see Perth public schools offering places to gifted students from China although the Education Minister doesn’t know how much Chinese parents will be charged to fill the spots.

Year 9 students from four Chinese cities will sit an entry level exam to gain a spot in some of Perth’s most sought-after high schools.

Up to 35 students could be admitted, but would need to pay fees starting in the tens of thousands of dollars.

Education Minister Sue Ellery says a plan is nothing new and won’t take away positions from WA students.

She did admit though that she wasn’t sure how much education agents in China would be charging families for their children to attend school in WA.
