Dick Johnson submitted this item about a group of English students protesting by placing stickers on circulating one pound coins. -EditorStudents in Worcestershire England have pasted nine thousand one pound coins with stickers protesting the cost of college tuition. The 9,000 figure is significant, a recent news item states, as this is the cost of a four-year degree. They placed the coins in circulation all over the UK.
There are no tuition fees in Scotland. Students in Northern England want the same. Youth Parliament is the student group advocating the change.
