We want money without mafia 2

June 21, 2002

I was delighted that vice-chancellors plan to raise extra income for universities ("Universities unite in call to hike fees", THES , June 14).

I began to muse on what that might mean: better facilities, more colleagues, students and research money, perhaps? Higher salaries? Only for v-cs, I expect. I began to wonder: who pays for all this? Then I remembered that I am the parent of a teenager who hopes to go to university in 2003.
