Argentina Enacts Law on Free University Studies

Buenos Aires, November 12 (PL-RHC)-- The Argentinean government enacted on Wednesday a law ensuring free university studies, as if they were a human right and a public good.

The new law, sanctioned on October 28th by the Senate, was signed by President Cristina Fernandez; chief of Cabinet Anibal Fernandez; and Education Minister Alberto Sileoni.

The Law on Effective Implementation of State Responsibility in Higher Education establishes the inevitable and main responsibility of the State.

It also guarantees equal opportunities for access, permanence and graduation in higher education for those who need it and meet stipulated legal conditions, set a note circulated in the Official Gazette.

One of the articles in the gazette highlights that state-university studies are free and entail the prohibition of establishing any kind of taxes on them.
