Flaws in fees policy 2

January 31, 2003

A £20,000 debt is surely a disincentive to students from deprived backgrounds to study purely academic subjects, such as philosophy, and an incentive to follow vocational degrees, such as law. If we are to follow the government's message to its conclusion, there is worth in education only as a means to get well-paid employment. There is no value in academia, intellectualism or knowledge for knowledge's sake.
