Colleges and universities should be treated on same level

June 2, 2009

Also speaking at the ACCC conference, Toronto Star political columnist Chantal Hébert told delegates that when it comes to lobbying the government, those in the education sector should pay attention to all parties because, given the current political landscape of short-term minority governments, there could be a different government in power in just a couple of years. Hébert says education will become a "crucial priority" in politics, and notes that the government's attention should not be divided between college and university -- both are equally important and deserve to be on the same level.
