Informative history on the fight to ‘keep ABE free”

The Canadian Federation of Students offers this history of the fight to keep ABE free in BC. Interesting to note that in the early 2000s, fees for ABE courses leading to an Adult Graduation and academic upgrading were higher than fees for courses leading to undergraduate and graduate degrees. The result was a huge decline in enrolment in ABE courses. It seems that the same policy, widely decried at the time as punishing toward low income citizens, was re-introduced in December 2014.
