Future of Higher Education Q&A
University costs are set to skyrocket for degrees in humanities, law and commerce. What’s worse is that Scott Morrison and Dan Tehan have made these changes to our higher education system without any evidence it would actually work.
I believe education needs to be affordable for all, no matter what you want to study.
A couple of years ago, Scott Morrison cut uni places. Now he expects people to be grateful he’s reversed some of those cuts. Thousands of Australians will still miss out.
At a time of COVID-19, when youth unemployment has gone through the roof, this announcement is mean-spirited and will burden young people with debt.
I’m sure you have many questions about what this will mean for your future.
We know the uni plan is a dud – it makes uni more expensive and harder to get into, while giving no funding support to universities.
That’s why I’m holding a Zoom on Thursday 20 August at 6pm with Labor’s Shadow Education Minister Tanya Plibersek.
I hope you can join us for this important discussion.
