What is not fair enough is the rules on who can get free dental treatment. I am a full time student, and 25 years old. Were i under 19, and a full time student, i would get it for free.
The financial burdens of full time education are the same for me, as they are for my under 19 year old class mates. In fact, i suggest that most mature students have even more of a financial burden than under 19's. Why do they get free prescriptions, dental care etc for free, when i have to pay a fortune for it?
As if the Supreme Court were reading my mind they made a judgement today that is relevant. The facts of the case do not match my situation, but i think it sets a precident for future challange to legislative discrimination.
This is just a quick blog post about it, i will write something in a bit more detail tomorrow...in the meanwhile, what do you think? Is this rule right? is this rule wrong? Should it change? and how should it change?
I would love to hear your views,
