As public funding for post-secondary education has declined, students who are Indigenous, Black, racialized, female, LGBTQ2+ or living with a disability have paid the price through higher rates of tuition and student debt – if they are able to attend post-secondary education at all. Post-secondary workers from these communities are more likely to have jobs that are temporary, low-paid and have few benefits or protections, or to have their jobs contracted out completely.
It doesn’t have to be this way. On Thursday, March 11 at 1 pm Eastern, join the Education for All campaign for a conversation on how a vision of education for all can advance equity and inclusion on our campuses and in our communities.
The Education for All campaign was founded by CUPE with our partners in labour and student organizations. Together, this coalition of over one million students and workers is advocating for a vision of high quality, affordable, accessible, publicly funded post-secondary education.
