Islamic School of Canberra vows to fight to restore federal funds
by Clare Colley
The Islamic School of Canberra will take its battle to restore $1 million in federal government funding to the High Court if necessary, its lawyer says, after Education Minister Simon Birmingham stood by his decision to revoke its funding.
The school in Weston lost its ACT registration after Mr Birmingham cut its funding over issues with governance by its operators the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) on Monday.
Its counterpart, the Malek Fahd Islamic School in Sydney, was stripped of its $19 million in Commonwealth funding in February.
