ABU students left out of NB debt relief program

March 25, 2009

Students and politicians in New Brunswick are questioning why the provincial government is excluding students from Atlantic Baptist University from new measures to reduce student debt. One Conservative MLA says the school saves the province money because it operates without government funding, and its students should not be punished as a result. A government spokeswoman says ABU is not included in the debt cap because private universities fall outside the parameters of the program. The spokeswoman would not say why the province would not include private universities in the program. Times and Transcript
