During a rowdy sitting day in parliament Christopher Pyne and the Abbott Government introduced legislation that will radically transform our higher education system.
These changes not only cut funding to universities, but could allow universities to charge $100,000 for a degree.
It’s not fair that Australians who dream of a university education will have to choose between buying their first home and getting a degree. University education should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their background.
It’s not too late to stand up for what’s fair -- this legislation is yet to be debated in the Senate. Labor has been out talking to students and staff at universities all across Australia and the message we’re hearing is very clear: Australians will simply not stand for $100,000 degrees.
