Except this time the wall is being dismantled.
"More than 150,000 adults could be robbed of a "second chance" in education because of plans to make them pay the full cost of their courses, civil servants have warned.
At present, further education students over the age of 24 only have to meet half the cost, while under-19s are not charged. But from next August, the Government intends to compel all over-24s taking A-levels or access courses to pay the full amount, and is introducing loans up to the value of £3,700 to cover the cost. Only those seeking basic qualifications in literacy and numeracy will receive grants which they do not have to pay back."
Lost for words. How many people who left school with few qualifications used F.E. to better themselves and society? They seem to be hell bent on marketising everything. The Police, Justice, Education, Health, Social Provisions.
