NTEU Media Release - Government Must Heed Calls for Increased Student Funding if Quality is the Priority
NTEU has today warned the Federal Government that unless public funding per student is increased, the growth in student numbers required by the Federal Government’s push to have 40% of 25 – 34 year olds holding at least a bachelor degree by 2025 will not be achievable.
NTEU President Jeannie Rea said “We agree with the Education Minister in that growth must be sustainable. However, just adding more students to the system, without considering the impact this will have on already crowded classes and strained teaching and student support resources, will not resolve this problem.”
