But how do the students at ATC think this 2020 Budget will affect them? Through no fault of their own they look like being significantly disadvantaged over the foreseeable future. Recently, the Morrison government released the Federal Budget, outlining their plan for tackling the economic devastation caused by Covid-19. Ambrose Treacy College students, Owen, Oliver, Atticus, and Josh presented their perspectives on the Federal Budget as Economic students. Overviewing tax cuts, youth employment, university tuition, national debt, and mental health, the boys express the typically underrepresented opinions of teenage students entering this broken economy.
Time will tell how the youth of Australia will be affected by the economic events of 2020, and the repercussions may be felt for decades. I am pleased that our students are very aware of what is happening and the impacts of the pandemic on our economy. Their research and learning this year has informed them and helped prepare them for what lies ahead.
