New Providers: the creation of a market in Higher Education
I am providing a temporary link here to my commentary in the current Radical Philosophy (which someone has scanned onto google docs). It surveys the place of marketisation in government thinking and the manner in which supply-side restrictions on undergraduate recruitment will be maintained to facilitate the entry of competitive, cheap higher education ‘providers’.
I will replace the link with one to Radical Philosophy’s own website once they relaunch it (very shortly, I understand) with all articles from the archive available as pdfs (over 150 issues since the 1970s). I encourage everyone to subscribe to benefit from this fabulous resource.
