Daily Mail is reporting that university bosses fear the higher education system is out of touch with the nation, a report has said.
Research by the Policy Exchange think-tank, which interviewed 50 university officials for its report, suggests growing discontent among vice-chancellors and chairmen of university governing bodies towards the system’s inability to reform.
It urged universities to ‘restore confidence in the value of the honours degree … reversing the growth of grade inflation and unconditional offers’.
It also encouraged universities to ensure students with Tory views feel able to express them without fear.
