These cuts mean approx 2,500 teachers & admin staff are loosing their jobs, 100's of courses are being discontinued, students fees are to rise by up to 50% & land where campuses are closed will be sold off. The TAFE system in Vic is a Public system, it doesn't belong to the govt or TAFE boards & decisions about its future should be made by the communities that it serves. TAFE is being forced to compete with the likes of McDonalds, Woolworths, Crown as well as many other large private organizations. Tax payers have a right to have a say where taxes are directed into. The general public are not being told the truth about TAFE and VET and who is getting what money. Students deserve the truth, the community deserves the truth
