Schooling for life?

  • P. J. Sidey
Part of the The Nation Today book series


Only the insensitive would couple education with money, and imply that the one entirely depends on the other. Only the anti-academic would point out that in 1964–5 it cost the taxpayers and ratepayers nearly £1500 million pounds to keep nearly nine million children and young people in full-time education establishments. Only the embittered would note that the average man in Britain earns less than £1000 a year yet, through his taxes and other dues, he supports a university complex that costs more than £1000 a year per student.
