Education 2

Breakdown of positions

Early childhood - subsidized early childhood care with schooling with established early childhood methods - it is a public good to provide early childhood education and socialization and it is never too early to start.

tertiary student allowances - there should be only one benefit - the unemployment benefit (or a universal benefit) - students who are unemployed should get that at that level there should be no punishment for studying besides the direct costs. Fees should be set depending on the course some will be free some won't even have student loans available. Student loans MUST cost the students at least the cost of capital to the state. It is better to have reduced fees than a zero interest policy.

Access to schools - No strong position but would look into removal of zoning
