Published Letter in The Guardian on 10th July 2017 on University Fees


Dear Sir

The initial mistake in introducing fees for university students was to make them the same for every institution. It is fanciful to think that we have over 160 universities which are all equally centres of academic excellence.

We need a premier league (Ivy in USA), a champions league and no more. Those hundred or so eliminated from these two divisions should become metropolitan or county universities charged with education from 16-80 embracing all of the Further Education sector. They should also have oversight of their local secondary schools.

Yours faithfully

Derek Wyatt
Former MP
