    Comment 25.2.2015

    The best election promise is a promise for education – Finland will rise through education!

    The National Union of University Students in Finland (SYL) and the Union of Students in Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences – SAMOK demand concrete action from the parliamentary candidates to save education. The students want to remind the candidates that there have already been too many cuts to education, and that no more economies should be made under the new government.

    “We have reached the end of the road of making cuts to our future. Together, the parties should invest in developing competence and equal opportunities to study. We can’t afford to lose a single generation”, Jari Järvenpää, President of SYL, and Joonas Peltonen, Chairperson of SAMOK, emphasise.
