Last month, the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) released Public Education for the Public Good: A National Vision for Canada’s Post-Secondary Education System.

Some of its finding:

The CFS’s central recommendation is for the federal government to bring in a Post-Secondary Education Act modeled after the Canada Health Act. Under such legislation, the federal government would work cooperatively with the provinces; restore funding to 1992 levels; ensure that tuition fees are reduced to 1992 levels; and provide enough money to universities and colleges that they could undertake much needed capital repairs.
