Students claims against education cut-off in Britain

United Kingdom’s Government plans to reform higher education and students finance. Once this reform is approved any university will be able to charge a graduate contribution of up to £6,000, even, in  exceptional cases, to charge higher contributions, up to a limit of £9,000. Students associations all over UK have claimed against what they consider a ‘deeply regressive’  proposal that will undermine the future of higher education and will make more difficult to some types of students to access it. A big demonstrations was held last week  in London and “The National Union of Students” has launched a campaign called “Right to Recall” As themselves said at NUS webpage: “NUS has launched the “Right to Recall” initiative, encouraging  every student to sign up to pledge to vote against any candidate that breaks their pledges on university fees or EMAs. At the general election, Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg made a great deal of politicians needing to ‘be more honest’, and ‘for promises to be kept’. The Liberal Democrats also suggested that a new ‘right to recall’ procedure should be introduced whereby MPs who break promises or are found guilty of impropriety should be vulnerable to a constituency petition of (10%) that MP would face an immediate by-election. The ‘right to recall’ promise sadly itself represents another broken promise by the Liberal Democrats, and may never actually be introduced. However, in order to show the strength of feeling by the voting public against those MPs who vote for the raising of University tuition fees and/ or for the scrapping of the Education Maintenance Allowance, we ask you to sign up to call for them to be recalled – this way, perhaps this broken promise can be put to some use!”
