Thousands Protest As UK Govt Debates Tuition Hike

Location: London, England
December 9, 2010

Tens of thousands of Angry student protesters marched through central London toward Parliament on Thursday December 9 2010 as lawmakers began debating a controversial plan to triple university tuition fees in Britain. Weeks of nationwide protests were reaching a crescendo, as thousands of students held demonstrations and sit-ins throughout the country. In central London, where recent protests have turned violent, demonstrators braved near-freezing temperatures to protest.
The tuition vote poses a crucial test for both the Conservative’s governing coalition with the Liberal Democrats and the government’s austerity plans to reduce Britain’s budget deficit.

I've seen a series of these enormous tuition hikes, here and abroad, so the real question is, how is the education they are receiving better? How can they justify these hikes? As it is already who can afford to get an education without taking loans?
