University places should not just be for the rich

6th April 2016

Under pressure from Nicola Sturgeon at a leaders’ debate last week, Ruth Davidson was forced to reveal her plans to charge our young people for university and college tuition via a stealth tax.

The Tories said they would charge for education, but gave no indication as to how much it would cost, who would have to pay it, and if it would increase like it did in England when tuition started at £1,000 per year and now costs £9,000.

As someone who worked as a college lecturer for years, I know the importance of a good education in forging a future for our young people. And this education must be free to all; not just those who can afford to pay.

University places should not just be for the rich.
