If lack of funding is not the only barrier to education, then funding is not the only solution

On the one hand, many young people will be deterred by the financial burden of attending university.  On the other hand, employers have little faith in cost free informal learning or it’s ability to prepare young people to work in the market place. Add this to problems accessing services, understanding how to negotiate for change, stereotyping, etc., and we paint a very bleak picture for the future.   We need to use the techniques for engaging with young people that work. And then we need to provide spaces for them to develop their learning far enough to create their own employment and other opportunities.
