Contentious post about tuition feesSystems thinking
Are people being denied loans to pay for tuition feed? Is it actually IMPOSSIBLE for people to go to university, or just expensive for them to?
When I went to university I found many people who didn’t really want to be there, gained little from the experience, were only really doing it because it was what was expected, and left with an undue sense of entitlement.
And now with opencourseware, iTunesU, and many other universities opening up their courses online, for free (not forgetting the pioneering Open University), it’s a wonder they had time to go and protest, let alone make placards and find balaclavas.
