Pyne’s university plan – $300,000 courses

Forget all the talk about university degrees costing as much as $100,000. If the Coalition’s Higher Education reform bill is passed, then students in some courses could face fees of up to $300,000. Education Minister Christopher Pyne may have been defeated in the Senate twice, but he has not given up on deregulating higher education fees. “Great reform takes time,” Pyne said, following the Senate’s rejection of his revamped Higher Education bill last week.  more ...

Real unemployment double the official rate

US weapons to ISIL

A commander of Iraq’s popular forces disclosed that wiretapping of ISIL’s communications has confirmed the reports that US planes have been dropping food and arms supplies for the Takfiri terrorists.  more ...

Culture & Life – Higher education denied

One of the most popular acts of the Whitlam Labor government in the 1970s was the abolition of university fees. It met one of the most general (if often least recognised) demands: that education should be free, secular and universal.  more ...
