Vice-chancellors and senior governors said universities’ ‘sneering’ attitudes towards patriotism, fat-cat pay packets and grade inflation have broken down public trust, The Times reported.

I have been on the receiving end of abuse for standing up to for my views and have been given written warnings for standing up to my uni.

The headline and the Times article aren’t representative of the Policy Exchange report. The Times article is basically a collection of saloon bar prejudices. The report is a much more sensible study.

To highlight the biggest flaw in the Times article; why on earth would the people who manage universities be complaining about the management of universities.

I wonder how many Times journalists, editors and owners will be pushing their children to do apprenticeships instead of university :flute:

Maybe, like drivers caught in a traffic jam, they think the problem is caused by all the other idiots trying to do the exact same thing as them at the exact same time?
