To: Education Minister Dan Tehan

Education for all - Stop fee hikes!

Everyone deserves access to an affordable, quality education - and that shouldn’t depend on your bank balance.

But Dan Tehan has announced he wants to hike fees for a whole range of degrees, putting university out of reach for thousands of young people.

Gouging students won’t fix the funding crisis in higher education.

It’s not only wrong – it’s reckless. Higher education is critical for our long-term health, economy and society.

Tell Dan Tehan: we need Education for all - stop fee hikes!

#EducationForAll #StopFeeHikes

Why is this important?

Tertiary education is critical to our national interest and our future.

It’s the intellectual and economic engine room powering Australia in health, technology, research, ideas and innovation. If the Government continues down a path of funding cuts and hiked fees it will wreck our universities and put our long-term future at risk.

How it will be delivered

We will be delivering this petition to Minister Dan Tehan


Reasons for signing

  • This is a disgusting tactic. To charge DOUBLE for courses that seem to be arbitrarily assumed to have less value. We need more students doing more subjects, not less. And it will saddle a whole generation with massive debt. It needs to be changed.
  • The Liberal Party are treasonous vandals, sabotaging our nation's future from within. The Labor Party has done little, over the past 40 years, to stop them.
  • I'm concerned about the poorer quality of education and the potential further job losses from the funding cuts to university
