Govt's tertiary fees free policy wrong priority - Nikki Kaye

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 3 October 2018

The National Party says the government is wrong to put its no-fees tertiary policy ahead of better pay and conditions for primary and secondary school teachers. It says the no-fees scheme for tertiary students costs $2.8 billion and is not value for money. Meanwhile, schools and the public are facing extensive disruption through industrial action. Nikki Kaye is National's education spokesperson. She joins Guyon Espiner in the Auckland studio.
