Steve Jones withdraws from Grayling’s venture

April 17, 2012

The Telegraph reports that Prof Steve Jones has withdrawn as founding partner from New College for the Humanities.

Jones, a columnist at the Telegraph, apparently had a ‘change of heart’ after learning about the level of fees NCH intended to set.  This seems unlikely given that the headline figure of £18 000 per year has been known since the outset.

More likely, as reported here over the last year, is that the business model looks unviable and that Jones is exiting early before the scale of the flop becomes apparent.
