All must have prizes

[Original Link] Three things that get my goat:

  • The government’s constant striving to push as many kids as possible into higher education, (which is nothing whatsoever to do with keeping unemployment figures down),
  • the inflation of A-level grades (because everybody’s suddenly got so much cleverer over the last ten years)
  • The ridiculously low salaries of UK academics

All of which are components behind this report that Cambridge University is thinking of building three more colleges.
