Opinion and comment from UCL academics in the media
Universities sometimes seem to have few political friends — unlike their
debt-laden students. It is not hard to tell why. It is not only that
individuals have the vote and institutions don’t. At times university
leaders give the impression that all they care about is hanging on to
the extra cash that higher fees have generated, even if this means their
graduates face a lifetime of debt and the government has to pick up the
bill for those who never repay their loans in full (and other public
services have to suffer even greater cuts as a result), writes Professor Peter Scott (UCL Institute of Education) in The Guardian.
