‘Student Fees freeze promise’

I have signed the NUS pledge to oppose increases in student fees although I would go further than putting a cap of fees. I believe they should be scrapped altogether. It is wrong that politicians who themselves were the beneficiaries of a free university education are denying new generations the same right. Education has always been the route by which people better themselves. We need to be ensuring that right for our young people without them having to be burdened with thousands of pounds worth of debt before they even commence their working lives.
