BIG change in college fees for PR's; PRs will no longer receive subsidized college tuition

hey,
This isn't making the mainstream news, but is VERY relevant for PRs with soon to be college age kids. Starting Jan 1 2018, Australian PRs will NO LONGER be eligible for the usual government subsidy. This will make university VASTLY more expensive.
Extracted from this article: http://m.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11850020

" Under the new university fee proposals, Australian permanent residents from all countries and New Zealand citizens will pay full fees; an average increase of A$8000 ($86200) to A$9000 ($9700) a year. About 6000 New Zealanders are in this category.

Immigration researchers have also raised fears about what next steps could be, including whether Kiwi expats could be charged to have their children attend Australian state schools."

Welcome to the land of the PM among others putting new laws/regulations on the table that severely impact migrants to Australia in a very negative way.
