In the second Tertiary Education Policy event by KPMG and the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education we'll debate the ways to achieve an equitable tertiary education system.
Australians believe we live in a fair and egalitarian country. We believe in a fair go: in equality of opportunity. We also believe that accessible education and training is a fundamental right and it facilitates prosperity, social mobility and a richer and more engaged economy.
However, while access to higher education has increased dramatically over the past 30 years, income and wealth inequality is also on the rise. This seeming contradiction challenges our most fundamental believes about intergenerational mobility.
