Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham,
University students and young Australians are going to be worse off by Malcom Turnbull’s Budget.
I am deeply concerned that your government is trying to cut billions of dollars from our universities in the 2017 Federal Budget.
Cutting billions of dollars from our universities, while driving up fees for students is a regressive, unfair and stupid idea. This government’s priorities are all wrong. Investing less in education and more in coal is bad policy.
It’s time this government laid off of our universities, students and the higher education sector.
As the Minister of Education please reverse the Coalition's harsh university cuts.
