More Money for Education

The Australian government is seriously considering raising the cost of University by putting an extra amount on top of HECS that is charge interest at market rates and is paid directly back to universities, rather than through the tax collection scheme. They are also thinking of changing full fee playing places from 25% to 50% and making people who fail a subject or take longer than the prescribed time for their degree, pay full fees. If this is brought in, I really hope I have finished honours, as I have taken much longer than the prescribed time. I particularly like the cartoon in this article.
