UK government defends increase in student fees

For a government which has supposedly put education at the top of its list of things to do in the UK, the ever-increasing cost of student education has become a serious issue within the UK. There have been a number of large student rallies announced as they try to put pressure on the government to reduce what in many cases can be a toll approaching £30,000 which needs to paid back in due course.

Gordon Brown has been very much in the news with his views and opinions on UK education although as ever the proof is in the pudding and at the moment the mixture is certainly not right. There is a need to appreciate that a £30,000 weight around one's neck after finishing student education is not the best start in life and has seen many successful students forced to take on low paid jobs to make ends meet.

Student unions have been fighting the UK authorities for some time now on behalf of existing and future students although as yet there has been very little in the way of assistance or financial help. Quite where this leaves the government's policy on education remains to be seen but there are many who feel the Gordon Brown phrase of education, education, education has now been shot to pieces.
