Re: Traveller Children Denied an Education
They can do what they always do - buy themselves some relief. Making sure that the educations of the poor are stillborn is a useful way to cut down competition with their kids on the college points system. And putting up fees just adds to it. The well-off will grumble, but will still pay out the money. Working-class kids will just write off their own chances of affording third level education. 'Tis an ill wind that blows nobody good.
