Universities in England and Wales want to double the cost of tuition fees, when the present system of charging is reviewed this year.
It could mean that tomorrow's graduates, who do not come from wealthy families or who are not subsidised by educational grants for the reason they come from low income families, might still be paying off their student loans when they are into their middle years.
It makes for a very unfair system for those whose parents have struggled and saved to give them the chance they never had themselves.
Surely, it is the right of everyone, to have an equal chance at getting the best education.
It should not be the case that those from the middle income bracket are left holding the bill.
