  10. Petition calling on Monash University management to oppose deregulation of higher education

    Say no to the deregulation of Australian Higher Education

    We as staff and students of Monash University condemn in the strongest terms the proposed changes to the Australian Higher Education system as advocated by the Abbott Coalition Government in its Budget proposals. We equally condemn the complicit nature of our own University management in working with the Group of Eight Universities to support the privatisation and deregulatory agenda of the Government.

    We condemn:

    • further erosion of our Universities as vital public institutions;
    • the intolerable debt burden placed on the shoulders of students and their families as the funding of Universities shifts even further away from a Government responsibility;
    • the even greater inequity in access, and in educational and employment outcomes that will result from the changes.

    We believe the proposed changes should be rejected in their entirety and call on all opposition parties to block the proposals in the Senate.

    Further we call on Monash University senior management and Monash University Council to make public its opposition to the Budget proposals, to defend its staff and students, and to advocate for greater Government funding of public education.
