Making Contact - Education Not For Sale

Around the world, students have been taking to the streets. They’re opposed to rising tuition fees and cuts to education.  On this edition, we’ll hear how students in Quebec, helped bring down the government and why Chilean students are back out on the streets again.  We’ll also speak to an activist in Puerto Rico who says she’s had enough of US-style higher education.
