Mia: Students won’t foot bill
AFFORDABLE UNIVERSITY EDUCATION is high on the agenda for the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) if it is elected to power in the next general election.
Since 2014 students of the University of the West Indies Cave Hill have been required to pay their own tuition fees, a decision that Opposition Leader Mia Mottley said she still opposed.
“We will not be charging fees at the University of the West Indies for Barbadians. Life is about choices. This is a $35 million problem out of an almost $4 billion budget,” she said yesterday.
Mottley was speaking at Kensington Lodge, St Michael, on her party’s Rub Shoulders With The People Of The City tour that saw BLP teams going door to door in all communities within the constituency. (TG)
