UK public universities become privatized while the banks are state-funded

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Tony Bates warns that legislators who cut education funding in response to the fiscal crisis are playing with fire. "In the UK's case, it is particularly invidious that young people, potential students, who had no responsibility whatsoever for the financial crisis, are directly paying for the incompetence and greed of the financial sector. This is the fuel to spark a violent revolution, and I say this with real trepidation as all my family are living and studying or working (so far) in England."
