On March 31, I appeared before the Standing Senate Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology to discuss Free to Learn. On the whole, I found the Senators’ reception to the proposal to be very positive. My fellow panelists Michael Mendelson, Jane Preston, and Andrew Sharpe also offered interesting perspectives on the barriers to Aboriginal post-secondary education. It is heartening to hear policymakers at the federal level discussing the proposal in earnest, and I sincerely hope it continues. Below is the transcript. You can also view the video, here (it takes a few minutes to download).
