It seems to me that there are two very separate sets of issues. One is the proposals themselves, the second the funding.
On the first, I like some of the elements in the model including the per pupil payments. but also detest the rigidity and doctrinaire approach. On the second, I have already put up the internal UNE response in UNE's response to the higher education funding cuts. The extraction of money from a sector encouraged to expand to meet other Government objectives doesn't seem to make a great deal of sense to me.
What do you think?
