As Dr. Watson Scott Swail from the Educational Policy Institute wrote in a recent article " The basic premise is sound: set repayment on what a person can afford to pay over a period of time. In theory, this negates affordability issues at the front end, which are attributed to reducing access and equity in our higher education system. It is worthwhile monitoring this project.
