Cuts to grant funding for disabled students will put their studies at risk
Today the Guardian published my evidenced-based take on proposed cuts to Disabled Students Allowances.
On April 6th 2014, the minister for Universities and Science, David Willetts MP, announced sweeping cuts and changes to Disabled Students’ Allowances in England. These cuts threaten disabled and dyslexic students’ studies.
I strongly advise all UK readers to petition these cuts and contact you MPs to ensure a parliamentary debate and Equality Impact Assessment before any changes to DSAs are made.
