Yep, this is going to be a rant. A rant about the oligarchy of the British education system and the oligarchy dictating the technology we use. Let’s go…
Throughout my days at school I was always a bit of a floater. A little bit here and a little bit there. Not a turd of any sorts (even though my jokes sometimes are).
Michael Farthing, the chairman of a group of research universities has sent a warning to the Government over its proposed ideas of putting a premium on a university degree education in the UK. He claims students are being labelled as mere “consumers” able to buy themselves an education under the new plans of tuition fees.
Without any shadow of a doubt I believe everyone deserves the right to have access to a decent education. The gift of being able to read, write and consequently understand the world is by no means a privilege but a right in this day and age. As such, teachers, private tutors and other academics should feel extremely honoured to be able to give such a gift. Education is and has been everything to me throughout my life and I thank it for everything I have achieved.
