and little progress for the poor

[ #16192 ]
Dear Log,

«On fairness, expanding higher education has, in reality, involved huge subsidies for the wealthy and little progress for the poor. The absolute chance of a child from a working-class family going to university has risen from one in 50 to one in six in the last half-century, but the middle classes retain the proportional advantage they always had. As for culture, Socratic ideals must now defer, or so the snobbish moan, to pig management.»

--"What are graduates for?: While we feverishly debate top-up fees [i.e., tuition], we are failing to question the true purpose of further education"
