Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown said today that $2.5 billion per annum is a much lower-than-expected cost for free tertiary education. The figure is part of a Senate release of information which the Greens supported.
"It is everybody's right in this great country of ours in the 21st century to get a tertiary education. We should go for it. It is a long-held Greens policy and we will be pursuing it strongly," Senator Brown said in Hobart.
