Anyway enough hilarity.
After campaigning for at least two elections on giving access to quality and relevant tertiary education, yesterday we have Cullen announcing they are chopping the poor quality and irrelevant out . Proposals include;
  • No more "bums-on-seats" funding for low-grade courses such as twilight golf, Maori singalong and dog-grooming.
  • Money to go to courses with prospects, such as business studies, health programmes and trades training.
  • Consultation with polytechnics to nail down firm funding formula between now and mid-May.
