Opposition Senator Calls for an End to University De-Registration

Opposition Senator, Damion Crawford, is calling for Parliament to ban universities which benefit from government funding from de-registering students.

Crawford says de-registering university students is counter-productive.

Senator Crawford was making his contribution to the State of the Nation debate in the Upper House today.

He proposed an alternative to the de-registration policy which is used at some universities.

Senator Crawford is a former President of the University of West Indies’ Guild of Students.
