The Education Squeeze

Wednesday, 14 August 2019 - 8:30am to 9:00am

Today we are looking at education. As the Morrison Government is fumbling around in the dark when it comes to it’s support of Australian workers and their education needs the Liberal party one trick pony does another turn of the carnival ground with Morrison pushing to privatise TAFE. We get a view on the announcement from the Australian Education Union.

On the funding of Universities front the Government has announced $80 million of tied funding this follows a two years $2.2 billion funding freeze for the sector – there are some pretty scrawny chickens in that hen house I think.
We get a perspective from the National Union of Students on the new funding regime.
