Students need to live in the real world
Hardly surprising is the fact that no consensus was reached at the so-called Education Summit that lasted less than 48 hours.
ASSE rallied its supporters for another demonstration today over the issue of tuition fee hikes. But what's the issue?
We're talking about a 3% increase for next September that amounts to about 70-dollars a year. That's $1.35 a week!
And this is why students are back on street? Imagine how easy it would be to earn $70.00 instead of wasting their time and frustrating so many others.
I wonder what some of these students will do when, one day, they'll ask their boss for a raise. If they don't get one, will they start organizing protests?
I understand there's a financial burden for many students.
But there's no such thing as a free lunch. If you want a university education, you should be willing to pay for it.
