Australia ranks among the lowest of OECD countries with regards to higher education funding, at just 0.7% of GDP; if the Federal Government is serious about a smarter Australia then it must commit further funding to tertiary education, not remove it. And a recent study from Universities Australia shows students are wallowing in debt, some unable to meet even basic living expenses.
On August 20 staff and students all around the country are standing up for our rights to fair work and a quality education.
