The high road and the low road of public investment in universities

John Rice and Nigel Martin write in The Conversation (22.7.14) that it is likely that the university fee burden shifting to students ‘will create barriers to participation for low socio-economic students … especially as fees increase significantly.  …  Looking globally, Australia was well behind similar nations even before the May budget. Further reductions will make for a meaner, dumber and less competitive society and economy.’
