Let's start first to give you the context of my thread
I live in montreal, quebec, Canada. We live in a society that was founded mostly with left politic. Our health system is free and our education fees are low. At the moment, we pay around 1075$/semester (+/- 2000$/year) to go to university. Even if the fees our low, the average student end university with +/- 15 000 in dept. Our governement wants us to now pay 1600$/year more. In other terms, they are asking the students to double the dept they end with Students are now on strike and asking the governement to cancel the raise. You have to be aware that this only represent 1.2% of the global education budget so we are not talking about a huge sum.
Where do I stand?
To be honest, I always tought everyone should have equal access to education. The best way would be to make it free. I think we should favor more an 'elitism' way of choosing the students by looking more into the grades.
I will not get into the details and argue on both side but I was really interrested to see what people all over think about education.
EDIT: We pay around 40-45% in tax... so yea we have low fees but we pay it back in some way.
P.S. This is no democrat vs republicans Forgive my poor english it is not my first language.
