Greens: Labor Needs To Clarify Will They Protect Students Or Slash Scholarships With The Coalition

The Australian Greens have announced that they are concerned that Labor will vote with the Coalition on the Coalition’s plan to slash start-up scholarships and to replace them with loans.

Greens higher education spokesperson Senator Lee Rhiannon said “[this] is alarming as the impact this will have on disadvantaged students and families will be severe. “If Labor votes to end the $2050-a-year scholarship which helps students from – disadvantaged backgrounds as well rural and regional areas, they will be supporting the Coalition’s brutal attack on students and public education.”

The Greens have said Labor needs to clarify its position immediately will Labor vote with the Greens to protect students or will it vote with the Coalition to slash scholarships and massively increase the debt burden on the most needy students?
