    This is a terrible phenomenon which happens in our country. When someone gets something free at point of service, such as education, people don't appreciate it as much. Look at the terrible behaviour in schools these days. People of TSR probably won't understand as many have attended good schools, but after being at a deprived school I can safely say that behaviour was terrible and for many years was unable to learn. There was just no respect. Same with many things, it just gets taken for granted.

    Same with university, people just seem to believe it is a right not a privilidge they must work hard when there for.

    Hopefully the tuition fee increase will make people value their education more and help change from how society is becoming where people don't appreciate the amazing opportunities our country offers.

    Just my little rant.

    Oh great, another fees thread - except it's stated in the ****est way possible.

    Work, and appreciation is subjective to the person - I don't think paying 9k would change a student wanting to party all the time, as much as they'd party if they paid 3k.

    Same for education.

    Some people are nutters, some people are hard-workers - get over it.

    To be fair the people at your school that mess around didnt ask to be there, they had to- just like you. Those people probably shouldnt progress onto higher education if they arent interested in learning.
