Cuts on Education

Cuts on Education – A Student Perspective

It is common to hear that young people in Britain are not engaged or interested in politics. It is obvious however, from the current protest movement, that college students are probably the most active and political when it comes to organisation and demonstration. They are also it seems, the most passionate and enthusiastic about radical change.

In this ten minute film, A 16 year old student from Xaverian College in Rusholme (Manchester), speaks about the cutting of EMA (Educational Maintenance Allowance) and the rise in tuition fee’s. We hear how protests are organised and what links them to the wider issues of cuts and job losses.
