“There’s so much value in going to university. It’s not just about the money – it’s a life changing experience,” she said. This quote from … is massively contradicting of the increase in fees in its’ initial essence.
If there is so much value in going to university then why would you put up the fees in the first place. wouldn’t it make more sense if it was so ‘life changing’ that everyone should have a free shot????
what I don’t understand and what I feel that the powers that be are ‘dilly dallying’ around like old women dancing round a handbag is the fact that it’s not about education, it’s not about making the system fairer, or even better but making sure there pockets are still laced with silk.
Also a crucial point to gather from this is that the system which will be in place by 2012 is just there to cover up the gaping hole that the cuts caused initially.
Yes we all understand that we have been told that we have to ‘pull together’ and that ‘times are hard for all of us’ but is it really that straight forward.
Is everyone equally paying for the mistakes of those at the top. This isn’t a rant to spark anarchy but to mearly question the idea that a person that is earning minimum wage in a council house that maybe taken away from them because it is only on short-term contacts whilst having their housing benefit cut and sure start centres disappearing from there communities so no reduced childcare. Are they really paying an equivalent amount to Mr pot of gold and no 1 im really rich hill who may have to decide wether to give up the jag or the porche.
The question I pose is … really?
