According to an article in the Gazette, the Nova Scotia government currently does not seem to think that reducing the insane tuition increases for professional students is an important topic. It's to the point where student loans do not cover the entirety of tuition.
For instance, I find it very counterproductive that the government expects medical students to pay 10% increases every year, and then turns around and decries a "doctor shortage", begging these debt-ridden doctors to stay in low-pay Nova Scotia.
The only solution to this is to vote with your dollars and your skills, professional students! Once you graduate, move to Ontario or Alberta. You'll get paid more money and have to pay less taxes as well, so your debt will disappear quicker. You owe this province nothing, so why sacrifice anything for it?
Once it gets bad enough, the administration will have no choice but to make changes.
Yes, I am a professional student.
Yes, I am leaving.
Goodbye Nova Scotia.
|Bye Bye NS|
