Education is important - I believe - and can do so much for our younger generation. With the law changed to say young people cannot leave full time education until they are 18, shouldn't we be encouraging them to continue, not scaring them off?
I recently saw that that UKIP says:
"Subject to academic performance UKIP will remove tuition fees for students taking approved degrees in science, medicine, technology, engineering, maths on the condition that they live, work and pay tax in the UK for five years after the completion of their degrees."
That's great! Please do that. Sort out some of your other issues and you'll definitely get my vote.
Labour want to lower the fees for university to £6,000 per year. They make this sound like it's a great offer for our young generation, but let's not forget who started this fee fiasco in the first place!
