The MYEFO on higher education

By Jen T. Kwok (NTEU National Office). MYEFO tells us that projected Budget savings from higher education have been revised down from over $5 billion over four years at the time of the May Budget, to $642.4 million, following the recent defeat of the initial Higher Education and Research Reform Bill 2014 (HERRA).
When Parliament reconvenes in February 2015, the Coalition government will attempt to pass its Higher Education Research and Reform Assessment Bill (2014) Mk II (HERRA Mk II), which incorporates the changes as announced in MYEFO 2014.  The problem is HERRA Mk II still involves includes the many of the worst aspects of the original Bill including the transfer of the substantive cost of higher education away from public institutions to private individuals. 
Treasury’s projections in MYEFO emphasise the scale of increasing student debt. The Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) is the largest asset on the balance sheet, and represents the net present value of expected loan repayments and therefore future sources of funds.
The HELP asset was $25.1 billion at 30 June 2014 and is projected to grow to $30.6 billion in 2014-15 and $52.0 billion by the end of the forward estimates. This confirms early NTEU estimates of the value of student debt over time. More...

MYEFO confirms NTEU analysis: student debt to reach $100 billion in 2020

By Courtney Sloane (NTEU National Office). The Mid-year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO) has confirmed the Abbott Government is shifting debt on a grand scale, and shirking its responsibility to properly fund education, the NTEU said today.
“The government is transferring debt away from the Commonwealth and pushing it on to individuals, particularly students,” said Jeannie Rea, NTEU National President.
“They are addressing the so-called ‘budget crisis’ by forcing students and their families into a lifetime of debt,” Rea said.
Rea said that the data on student debt released as part of MYEFO confirms the NTEU’s estimate that total student debt would be $52 billion by 2016-17. More...
