Higher Education: D-

You are here: Home / Blog / Politics / Higher Education: D-
The plans for Higher Education announced by David Willetts on Wednesday in Parliament look as though they were done on the back of an envelope.

Two questions failed to be asked:

What should our university pattern look like for the next 25 years in a world in which China and India will overtake USA?

How should we fund this pattern?

Instead we have a plan for short termism which will help no-one - not UKplc, not our universities and certainly not our students.

There's not even an extension of Ofsted to examine the quality of university teaching.

Without a competitive global education strategy we are short changing our children and our children's children.
