The impact of abolishing EMA

Posted: 06/03/11

40 students from the City of Westminster College joined Karen for a discussion about the impact of the abolition of the Educational Maintenance Allowance. Top of their list of concerns was how they would be able to afford to travel to college in future. Many chose City of Westminster because it offers specialist courses not available elsewhere, which would prepare them for university. Others said they made a deliberate decision to break away from schoolfriends who were not supporting their efforts to get on in education.
