    Come what May, Labour must defend widening participation in higher education

    The “radical review” into tuition fees promised by May today will look into overhauling a regressive system she helped create that punishes the most disadvantaged students. It may on the surface be a somewhat welcome product of Labour pressure and a positive argument for the continued participation of young people in our politics.

    An early start of 6.45am was shown to be well worth the effort after hearing the intelligent and articulate discussion at the first day of the National Policy Forum (NPF) conference.

    WATCH: Angela Rayner says another review won’t solve student loan interest rates problem

    Angela Rayner attacked the Tory government’s record on higher and further education on The Andrew Marr Show today. “We’ve had three announcements of reviews in the last twelve months. Another review really isn’t going to solve the problem of the hike in interest rates, which this government has done, and the tripling of tuition fees,” said the shadow education secretary. “Of course most students have said that the removal of maintenance grants is one of the biggest barriers to them at […]
