Susan White started this petition to Education Secretary and

Amend state university fees, Student loans and rents to reflect the current situation our young people are in. 
Our young people want to continue with their education and move forward but the current crisis we find ourselves in is holding them in a worrying financial state. 
Many young people are forced to stay in their student accommodations learning solely online with little of the university experience they rightly deserve when paying large fees, especially difficult for practical learning or assessments to take place. They were assured it was safe to start/return to university and all measures were in place to keep our young people safe. With the staggering rates of Covid increases fuelled by shared accommodations, places that should be home and provide safety for our young people have become the very thing that puts them at risk. 
I ask that you make all universities Covid safe zones that additional cleaning and sanitising is taking place in all large accommodations and communal areas. 
I ask that you support the thousands of young people many living away from home for the first time, unable to work and support themselves because of the crisis.
I ask that you reduce rent payments so they have money to live on, increase loans to secure them financially. Reduce fees to reflect the learning that they are able to take part in. 
Most of all I ask the government to show as much care, respect and devotion to these young people as their families do.
