Cuts are inevitable, so let's join the debate 2
Your coverage of the proposed cuts to higher education funding tends towards an acceptance that they will happen ("Hefce budget to be slashed by £915m over three years", 31 December). Why?
Education on the cheap rarely works and is certainly not something that a modern democracy should countenance without a very serious debate. How about pulling out of Afghanistan and using the money for education instead as a priority for this election year?
