One comment on “The Price of Education

  1. Good point. I was lucky in getting through university at the end of the grant era. I don’t think I would have had the confidence to go to uni knowing that I would come out of it with a huge debt, even given I wasn’t significantly physically disabled then. I’ve certainly thought twice over the past couple of years and ultimately backed away from going back for post-grad studies, and that’s even before the new rises, though disability has played more of a role in that decision.

    But if I was approaching the system for the first time now, with huge debt guaranteed, knowing that disability means I can’t study and work (study is doubtful enough), knowing that my chances in the labour market are slim indeed, then I don’t see a way to justify it.
