Replacing the old system with a worse one?
Under a new debt repayment system in England, students could only repay their loans when they are earning at least £21,000 a year. Because of this, the government now says that around 45 per cent of them would not be able to repay their loans, since they would not earn enough to do so.
This means that the government will just have to write off 45 per cent of loans extended to student, under the new system.
This also means that nearly half of future graduates are studying for free, and would not have to worry about paying off what they owe to taxpayers.
“Rallies are a reality in the UK education system. This blog tells why students resort to protest on the streets.”
In the coming days, students in the United Kingdom will be holding more protest rallies. They will be the continuation of the campaigns they started at the end of last year which is only a month ago. Their specific concerns include the privatisation of student loans, very high tuition fee, stagnant education services, the relevant issue around them which is the discrimination against cleaning staff, low salaries of school staff and faculty and even their right to hold protests.
