Students' first-in-family policy needs support

Students' first-in-family policy needs support


Free education for the first person in a family to undertake tertiary study is a creative, innovative and transformative proposal from New Zealand students, says TEU vice-president Sandra Grey.

Tertiary education is full of new ideas, but sadly, tertiary education policy is strangely stagnant and unimaginative. NZUSA’s proposal today though, is a game changer.

“If we make it easier for families that have never been in a university or polytechnic we are giving opportunities and education to the people who can gain the most and need the most.”

Sandra Grey say all political parties need to look at NZUSA’s proposal to get new families into tertiary education and sign up to it new before the election.
