Defending post-16 education: Saturday 22 September
UCU Left is organising a day-long event on Saturday 22 September: ‘Defending post-16 education in an era of austerity’.
Venue: Goldsmiths, University of London
Time: 11am – 5pm
I will be speaking on a panel at 2pm with Ken Spours and Jane Hardy addressing the topic: ‘Does it matter who owns our education system?’
I have also written an article for the UCU Left magazine on the related issue of university governance and corporate form. It should be out shortly.
I will probably talk about joint ventures, private buyouts, the von Prondzynski review into Scottish universities and bond issues.
ps. I am not a professor.
