Business Round Table Agrees With Student Unions

Published: Mon 9 Oct 2000 11:58 AM
After years of promoting an elitist education system, Rodger Kerr and the round table have come to their senses and recognised the brain drain that students have been talking about for the last five years.
“The APSU Students' Union believe that this has been caused by the increasing burden of debt that students are being shackled with,” said acting president Rob Scowen Today.
“We call on the Business Round Table to put their money where their mouth is! And to actively work toward reducing this Brain drain.
By increasing starting salaries to graduates and reducing the cost of education and research, business can take an active role in reducing this travelling talent.”
“We support the Business round tables concerns about the number of people leaving, however until they recognise their role in creating this drain and take an active stance in combating it, there will be no stopping our talent from going overseas.”
