The political economy of mass higher education: shrinking the 'public' and elevating the 'market'
 

Summary: The political economy of mass higher education:
shrinking the 'public' and elevating the 'market'
The recent Browne report on student fees
and funding claimed its proposals
amounted to a 'paradigm shift' in higher
education. Browne's fiercest critics have
also assumed that his proposals, if and
when implemented, would represent a
radical departure from the post-war
pattern of a (largely) publicly funded
higher education system and the
educational and social values which that
system had embodied. However, an
alternative view is also plausible - that the
deep normative structures of English
higher education (and even its
organisational practices) will survive a
'market' in student fees. This lecture will
discuss these contrasting views of the
future of higher education.
