Chili: Plus de 100.000 étudiants manifestent leur mécontentement

Chili: Plus de 100.000 étudiants manifestent leur mécontentement | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

 

Les étudiants ne sont pas satisfaits de la réforme éducative proposée par la présidente jeudi dernier.

 

Les autorités chiliennes en avaient plein les bras avec les étudiants présents dans les rues de Santiago. Selon les sources, entre 50.000 et 150.000 personnes sont allées manifester leur mécontentement contre la réforme éducative présentée jeudi par la présidente Michelle Bachelet. De plus, la corruption était au cœur des préoccupations émises par les manifestants dans la capitale du pays.

Les policiers sont sortis pour disperser la foule. Cette intervention a provoqué certains affrontements avec les jeunes hommes et femmes exprimant leur désaccord. Le thème de l'éducation est très sensible au Chili. Il n'est pas rare de voir des étudiants manifester. Cependant, la corruption dont est accusée la présidente du pays est plutôt inhabituelle. Les scandales qui ont touché la famille de Michelle Bachelet dernièrement en sont la cause. (...) - Blastingnews, 2015/04/17

[Canada] Les deux légitimités du conflit étudiant

[Canada] Les deux légitimités du conflit étudiant | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

Le conflit que vivent certains collèges et universités est aggravé en raison de l’ambiguïté du statut juridique des associations étudiantes et de la portée de l’obligation des institutions d’enseignement de dispenser les cours.  Les associations et leurs opposants invoquent chacun leur légitimité. Si le gouvernement ne souhaite pas intervenir, les universités pourraient au moins ajuster leur réglementation afin de mettre fin au flou juridique qui entretient le conflit.

[Canada] Les étudiants sont aussi des acteurs sociaux

[Canada] Les étudiants sont aussi des acteurs sociaux | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

C’est donc aujourd’hui que débutait, dans de nombreux campus universitaires, la première journée de deux semaines de grève étudiante, aboutissement de plusieurs semaines d’assemblées générales dans de nombreuses régions du Québec, comme un rappel des grandes manifestations qui avaient marqué le Printemps érable. Ils étaient aujourd’hui près de 50 000 étudiants en débrayage et d’autres votes restent encore à venir. Les visages sont parfois les mêmes, de nouveaux se sont joints au mouvement, le carré rouge a refait son apparition le temps d’un printemps qui a encore des allures d’hiver, alors qu’on défilait bien souvent en t-shirt dans les rues de Montréal en mars 2012. Si l’ampleur du mouvement et sa cohésion, tant politique qu’organisationnelle, ont peu à voir jusqu’à maintenant avec la force du mouvement étudiant d’il y a trois ans (près de 316 000 étudiants étaient à l’époque en débrayage au plus fort des manifestations), les discours des commentateurs de la droite québécoise, eux, n’ont pas beaucoup changé. Infantilisation, appel aux mesures musclées afin de forcer le retour en classe, quitte à contourner les votes par le recours aux tribunaux : on refuse de considérer les étudiants comme des acteurs sociaux à part entière.

Australia: Thousands of foreign students in visa fraud racket

Tens of thousands of foreign students have become permanent residents in Australia as a likely result of widespread fraud and corruption within and outside the federal Immigration Department.

Documents provided to Fairfax Media journalists and an investigation by Monash University academics has revealed that thousands of foreigners have avoided federal regulations and been granted illegal permanent residency visas.

The Commons business committee has said the entire student loan system is nearing a point where it is financially unworkable. We want to know if you feel your student loan was worth it.

Student loans are often the only reason many can afford to even think about going into higher education.

Now the entire student loan system has been declared almost financially unworkable by a group of MPs in charge of scrutinising university policy. The Commons business committee has called for an urgent review of the system just days after he Guardian reported that Vince Cable, the business secretary, had stalled on the sell-off of the student loan book because of fears it would not raise the amount of money predicted.

Nearly 60 percent of students said that they worry about paying for college, while more than half worry about paying living expenses.

UK government tightens student visa rules

From November, it will be even more difficult for Indian students to travel to the United Kingdom for education, writes Kounteya Sinha for TNN. Britain recently announced a fresh crackdown on student visas as further measures of the Immigration Act came into force.

Australia's top eight universities push for higher fees, fewer students

Australia's top eight universities push for higher fees, fewer students | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

Group of Eight vice chancellor describes deregulation as ‘holy grail’ for universities.

 

Australia’s prestigious Group of Eight (Go8) universities are likely to reduce the number of people they enrol while increasing fees for each student after deregulation, a key backer of the reforms has predicted.

Ian Young, vice chancellor of the Australian National University (ANU) and chairman of the Go8, argued this downsizing would be good news for the non-Go8 universities as it would “free up” more capable students to attend other institutions – “a trickle-down or a flow-across effect”.
