Brianne Goertzen's article highlights one of our society's mistakes respecting post-secondary (No basis for fee hike in continuing fees for graduate students (June 18).
It is illogical that we fully fund elementary and high school education, then impose tuition fees on students who wish to continue their education at universities or technical schools.
Since we have long recognized the vital role of education in society and already fund more than 80 per cent of the costs of universities and technical schools, why do we make it extremely difficult for many students to continue with higher learning? Why should graduates be burdened with debt upon graduation?
Why can't we recognize the stupidity in all of this and properly fund the full costs of tuition for all students whose grades prove their commitment to learning?
