THE SALE OF STUDENT LOANS: HOW DO WE STOP IT?

A Teach-in at the Houses of Parliament: ‘The sale of student loans…how do we stop it?’

Monday, January 13th 2014, 7pm
Details: http://andrewmcgettigan.org/2014/01/07/teach-in-at-the-house-of-commons-monday-13-january/
***
‘The sale of student loans; the latest move turning first rate public universities into third rate private companies: How do we stop it?’

Speakers so far confirmed:

Stefan Collini, Professor of English at Cambridge and author of the ‘Sold Out’ article in the London Review of Books, 24th Oct 2013

Andrew McGettigan, author of The Great University Gamble: Money, Markets and the Future of Higher Education

Natalie Fenton – Professor of Media and Communications at Goldsmith and past president of the University and College Union

As the changes to university funding are advancing Collini argues that ” … the coalition government took the decisive steps in helping to turn some first rate universities into third rate companies. If you still think the time for criticism is over, perhaps you had better think again”.

The Higher Education Teach-In is your opportunity to hear and question the experts so then we can press the Coalition to think again.
