UNESCO has called on governments never to allow student loan repayments to rise above 15% of their national incomes so that further expansion does not leave the disadvantaged behind. Analysing global trends, the new paper, We can make higher education equitable and affordable for all, shows the number of students has doubled to 207 million & governments cannot keep pace. The cost of higher education is falling to households, many of whom cannot afford it. Inequity means.that only 1% of the poorest have spent more than four years in higher education, compared to 20% of the richest. #MindTheStudentGap Bit.ly/tertiaryed
