OECD report shows Higher Education is crucial to economic recovery -Randerson

Commenting on the release of an OECD report calling on European Countries to prioritise investment in Higher Education as a way out of recession,Welsh Lib Dem Shadow Economy Minister, Jenny Randerson AM said:

"The OECD have it spot on and this report raises some serious questionshere in Wales. We have recently seen the Labour-Plaid Government introducing top-up fees and universities facing cuts in funding at a time when theeconomy is in serious trouble.

"This report once again shows that the policies of this government are wayoff course for building a better Wales. Undermining further and higher education during a recession is akin to drilling holes in the roof during athunderstorm.

Notes: The OECD report can be found here.
