“A dramatic change in course” needed in MB’s treatment of post-secondary: Chernomas, Hudson

August 9, 2019

University of Manitoba Professors Robert Chernomas and Ian Hudson write that the Government of Manitoba’s recent and upcoming policy decisions will make post-secondary more expensive and less accessible, which in turn will have negative effects on both individuals and the broader economy. Chernomas and Hudson highlight the impact that greater access to more education has on the country's economy, the population’s wellbeing, and the quality of research done by universities. In light of the upcoming provincial election, the writers encourage provincial parties to consider making clear statements on how they will ensure the research capacity, accessibility, and quality of the province’s post-secondary sector.
