As the pandemic hits budgets hard, Kenney's UCP is continuing to push towards "performance-based funding" for Alberta's universities, colleges, and post-secondary institutions. How does this contribute to the already ongoing corporate influence and profit-making trends we've seen in post-secondary education, and how do these changes contribute to the UCP's broader assault on organized labour in the province? Marc Schroeder, former president of the Mount Royal Faculty Association, joins Team Advantage to discuss why low-cost, accessible, and public post-secondary education in Alberta is something we can't afford to lose.
