Toward a Progressive Post-Secondary System

After years of tuition fee increases and no recognizable improvement in the quality of the learning environment, post-secondary students in Ontario are deeply concerned with the affordability and quality of their education. After a preliminary meeting to discuss possible elements of the NDP platform, the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance wishes to present the following ideas in greater detail. Students understand that political and economic circumstances will play a large role in platform development, and we have attempted to focus on ideas that are both good policy and good politics, but with a low price tag. As the 2011 Ontario Election approaches, bold and innovative ideas will be necessary to improve the system and to capture the imagination of the students and people of Ontario.
