A story with legs

Last night’s 7.30 Report on ABC TV ran a story on student debt and why it is rising due to CPI. It was HECS 101, including Bruce Chapman explaining the system.

Good report, calm and full of facts – but that it made prime-time at all should worry universities – so should coverage of the Greens campaign on study debt and Independent MP Dai Lee‘s question to the Treasure in the Reps last week.

Because underpinning unrest among slugged students are questions whether debt for degrees is now good value.
