As long as the children need, parents will do their best to satisfy. Parents in the world are basically generous in their children's expenses. As long as it is for the children, what is the money? However, a few days ago, the results of Australia's education cost statistics were announced. The parents of Maoben couldn't help picking up tissues to wipe the tears from the corners of their eyes...

The survey results of the "Herald Sun" show: Melbourne's education cost is the first in Australia! Whether it is a public school or a private school, the education cost of Melbourne's trendy parents is much higher than the Australian average! So how high does Melbourne's education expenditure need to be to rank first?

According to survey data from Monash University and the ASG Planning for Education Index, assuming that parents send their children to public schools, the total cost in Melbourne for 13 years is $70,604, and the average annual cost is $5431... This data is second only In Brisbane, the most expensive in Australia, it is 2.7% higher than the national average, ranking second in Australia!

What if the child goes to school in a private school? At the end of 13 years, 438380 dollars is gone. This is a few figures, six figures! Calculate the average, $33,722 per year! The cost of Maoben's private school is half higher than the average cost of the entire Australian private school...

Therefore, Victoria is rated as the most expensive place for private schools in Australia.

ASG chief executive Ross Higgins said that Victoria has some "elite schools", while Melbourne has the best private schools with students from abroad and interstate.

In a metropolis like Melbourne, the cost of religious schools is relatively low, at $121,547 in 9349 years, and an average of $4.3 a year, which is XNUMX% lower than the Australian average. When you see this, you may ask, why not choose to go to a free public school?

Unexpectedly, according to this ASG survey, public schools that claim to be free to the outside world actually hide many invisible expenses! These expenses are even higher than the children’s tuition...

There are several sets of school uniforms for children from head to toe. You need to buy different school uniforms for different classes, electronic equipment and textbooks for class, expenses for group outings and camping, and expenses for school excursions.... The total cost of public school for a year. It turned out to be as high as 4336 dollars! I believe many parents would never think that the amount of money accumulated every time is so amazing! Of course, in a private school, the total cost of miscellaneous items is close to $4224.

Mr Higgins said: "People are not aware of hidden costs." "Some people say that public schools are indeed free education for parents-they say this because they don't understand that these hidden costs are for families with two or three children. What does it mean to say."

He also said that the cost of education in Melbourne has more than tripled in the past ten years.

And the above amount is only the cost of a single child. If it is a family with two or three children and wants to let the children go to private schools, the money for a house after 13 years will flow away like water...
