Marginson is right

Over the past few years I've occasionally taken issue with something Simon Marginson says. But in the article absolutely everything he says is 100% spot on. This is the thing to read about the effects of Pyne on higher education...http://theconversation.com/higher-education-the-age-of-pyne-the-destroyer-begins-26483

For example:

"The leading universities can also put money into scholarships for students from under-represented social groups, but the use of academic criteria for entry ensures that they will continue to be dominated by families from affluent backgrounds that can afford to invest in academically strong secondary schools."

GRRRRRRRRR.
