Today two guys came to our school from the Times Education Supplement, to ask a group of the sixth formers about their thoughts on top-up fees. Our head of sixth form Ms Julian said it was open to volunteers but virtually made me go, seeing as I'm doing A-Level Politics and am known to be quite intelligent (lies!). I was happy to go because I'd miss a Politics lesson .
So three Year 13s and three Year 12s went. First the photographer took mugshots of us. Then the journalist took each of us aside and asked us questions, and our views on the top-up fees. Then we had a group chat about it and they took more photos.
Me and my mate expressed support for the fees and the other four were against. My mate argued that the ordinary taxpayer shouldn't have to pay for a student to go to university. Whereas I argued that too many people are going to university anyway and the fees may eliminate stupid courses like Meat Studies. I said they would also turn a degree into an investment that the student has to consider the risk of, therefore putting some off rubbish courses and revaluing the academic courses.
The journalist was impressed with us because we offered more than one point of view and reasoned them well. So not a bad day.
I'm receiving a copy of the Times Education Supplement on Friday so I can see how my photos came out. But I know I'll be buff so look out for yours truly!
Oh my god...thats tomorrow!
