GIVE ALL 17 YEAR OLDS WHO TRAVEL TO THEIR NEAREST HIGHER EDUCATION ESTABLISHMENT A FREE BUS PASS

Why is this important?

IT IS COMPULSARY NOW THAT CHILDREN STAY IN EDUCATION OR GET AN APPRENTISHIP UNTILL THEY ARE 17. THIS MEANS THAT CHILDREN LIVING IN RURAL AREAS ARE AT A DISSADVANTAGE FINANCIALY. A BUS PASS FOR A TERM STARTING SEP 2013 WILL BE £230 A RISE OF OVER £50 SINCE THE SUMMER TERM.

Reasons for signing

  • As my son is 17 years old attending college and has been fined 2 times 40 pounds each
  • Yes, to all 15 (& under on need) to 18, & to all in full-time education up to 21 (25 on low income students) ; because all the measures for education are an investment, not an expense & let people's Q.E. pay for it (all the education as well, not just the bus passes)
  • Because we shouldn't have to pay for the travel to school of which the education will benefit Britain economically in the future
