This one is a ripper. I actually believe in free education for all but I just could not express myself well enough, hence it was canned for a strong edit. I like publishing these drafts. I can say what I like and then say it was not really for publication. I might actually write some draft posts.
If you go on to earn large amounts of money when you are qualified, then what is wrong with returning some of your taxpayer funded education to the taxpayers?
I believed in free uni education for all, until everybody wanted it and once qualified, worked along side me in a manual job.
Australia does not need so many uni educated people. We do need a well educated and literate population and a first class primary and secondary education should be a high priority for all governments.
My niece who missed out on first round offer for teacher training does not need a uni education to be a teacher. She is clever and smart and just needs some training on how to teach and deal with young students.
