Fiona Millar says something that rather blows my mind. OK, she\’s talking about Boy Dave\’s silliness about teacher qualifications but this does still shock at tad:
With its explicit condemnation of non-academic courses taken in non-Russell Group universities,
What in buggery is any university, that epitome of academia, doing teaching non-academic subjects?
That\’s the whole point of a university: academic study. Non-academic study is indeed valuable, interesting, desirable and socially useful. It\’s just that it shouldn\’t be taking place in a university.
