Hau Taki Haere | Tertiary Update Vol 24, No 19
Tonight at 7pm, Tuesday 6 October, Te Hautū Kahurangi o Aotearoa | Tertiary Education Union is hosting an online Tertiary Education Election Forum with representatives from three of Aotearoa’s major political parties.
Chris Hipkins (Labour), Gareth Hughes (Green) and Simeon Brown (National) will join TEU at 7pm tonight for the Facebook Live event where they will be asked to provide their Partys’ stance on - or comittment to – issues related to our TEU General Election Pledges, and recent issues impacting the sector, specifically:
• How will your party ensure the stabilisation of the public tertiary education sector in the short term, an approach which adequately addresses the revenue lost due to international students not being able to come into New Zealand?
• What will your party do – both in policy and resourcing terms - to address the systemic racism, sexism, homophobia, and the other disparities that exist in the tertiary education sector?
Join us at 7pm tonight, Tuesday 6 October, for the Facebook Live event, and keep a look out for our summary of the discussion.
