Dear Mr Carmichael,
As our elected Member of Parliament, we petition you to vote against the unfair and unjustified raise in tuition fees and savage cuts to higher education as planned by the Government.
 Key points of the plans include:


·        Fees being raised to £9000 a year, putting off many of the poorest from going to university. Nick Clegg himself said in April 2010 fees of £7000 would be ‘a disaster’.


·        The universities teaching grant being cut by 80% and Students on many courses being entirely responsible for funding their own degrees-effectively privatising our higher education system


·        Students in England will face amongst the highest fees of any public university system in the industrialised world alongside some of the lowest levels of public funding for university teaching


·        In a ‘market' for higher education, some students will feel forced to choose the cheapest course, not one that suits them best.


·        Most graduates still paying off their debts 30 years after graduation.


We see no reason for the plans to go ahead and ask you to act as our representative and to fight against them, valuing the social and economic benefits higher education brings
