It's time to drop the dead parrot 3

July 12, 2002

Frank Furedi complains of centralised bureaucracy in assessment and argues that lecturers should be allowed more autonomy. What he really wants is a return to the pre-Robbins days when dons did pretty much what they liked against the background of a small elite student population. These days a little more rigour is required, even if rigour and bureaucracy are not the same thing.
