The death of education as a public good

Posted on

I hope that all those LibDem MPs who support current ConDem Higher Education  policies, and the Higher Education bills still to be voted on, read this and finally understand that whether or not their policy for tuition fees is more ‚Äòprogressive’ than the current system is a red herring.

It is that they are presiding over something far greater and more worrying - the final destruction of an education system (and I mean system because schools policy is heading in the same direction)that was built on the philosophy of education as a public good.
