Since the 1970s, successive governments have reinforced a social tendency to know the cost of everything and the value of nothing. Education has not escaped this destructive culture and John Heathershaw has given a chilling warning of the death of the public university. http://www.ekklesia.co.uk/node/13749
It wasn't like this in my day. When I was a student in the nineties, older people would criticise student apathy, contrasting it to their own experience of university in the sixties or seventies.
Since leaving full-time education, I have worked with the student movement in several ways – through backing campaigns, through being employed by a students' union, through giving freelance media training to groups such as People & Planet and the Student Christian Movement.
And I have never felt more proud to be associated with the student movement than I do this week.
