Imagine an education system that is free – Let’s talk about how to make it real!
August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm AEST
Freedom Socialist Party online meeting
The COVID-19 pandemic has desecrated the lives of workers, students and teachers across the globe. When the pandemic hit Australia universities panicked, slashing staff to compensate for the staggering loss of revenue. As the crisis lingers, chancellors continue their offensive while the Coalition government shifts the burden onto students. How did we move from a country with free education in the 1970s to the tyranny of neoliberalism with its casualised workforce and universities run as businesses? This discussion will examine this history, celebrate worker and student resistance and discuss what it will take to permanently win free education for all.
