Labour admitting its ruining Scottish University education
Tony Blairs Labour party has made a silent confession that its plans
to charge ALL students fees for university courses AND give no
grants is prejudicial.
The Scottish Office ( the lackies who impose Londons will on the
Scots population) has agreed to pay part-time tuition fees for several thousand sand people on low incomes or on benefit.
The policy will be implemented in October, and should aid those who want to continue their education but cannot find the £200 - £400 tuition fees required.
Its very sad that great Scottish Universities can accept foreign students
who CAN afford to pay fees anyway (as they always have), but that children
of tax paying Scots cannot attend the same university.
Blair has to realise Universities are not vocational training colleges
and are paid for through taxes already
