The South African Union of Students (Saus) has put forward recommendations on how to better fund varsity fees during public hearings.
The commission of inquiry into Higher Education and Training is sitting for two days at the Tshwane Council Chambers and will hear recommendations from academics, student groups and government.
Saus representatives suggest that the salaries of parliamentarians, vice-chancellors and other public servants be reduced, reports EWN's Barry Bateman.
The union also proposed eradicating government corruption, the nationalisation mines and banks to secure funds, Bateman explains.
At the same time Wits Vice-Chancellor Adam Habib has recommended a hybrid funding model which makes better use government funding and private sector resources.
