Give and take

July 4, 2013

Chris Higgins reflects on university funding against the backdrop of the coalition’s continuing cuts to education spending (“(Almost) all donations gratefully received”,  June). He focuses on distinguishing between ethical and unethical funding by private individuals and institutions – fair enough to the extent that the cash is needed to fund universities now, some might say. However, at least as much effort should be put into campaigning for a fully publicly funded academy. A tax on corporate banking transactions might be a start.
