Infometrics on free tertiary fees

Infometrics assesses the Government’s free policy. Their summary:

  • Accessibility: B- (most benefits high spending households)
  • Student numbers: C+ (no significant increase in enrolments)
  • Skills gaps: F (is discouraging people from trades training)
  • Improving quality: F (tertiary funding per student is frozen)
  • Wasting taxpayer money: A+ ($2.5b down the drain)

A very astute analysis.
