Evidence-free policy: the Pyne reforms to higher education

Peter McPhee writes in Inside Story (5.9.14) that the higher education sector is now in uncharted waters. ‘Its very considerable achievements – the education of rapidly increasing numbers of students from Australia and overseas and, in many cases, acknowledged research expertise – are at stake. But the choice appears to be between the status quo plus cuts to research and special grants funding on the one hand, and a radical new agenda on the other. Either way, researchers and students will pay the cost.’
