Andrew Norton on 25 years of analysing HE policy

 In Features this morning he reflects on 25 years of analysing HE policy

It’s a trade where expertise is in short supply, he laments in Features this morning.

“The last few years of government higher education policy have sometimes seemed like one of those Twitter threads that start with ‘wrong answers only’. Would Job-ready Graduates have made it through the policy process if we had accessible research on the drivers of student choices and university supply decisions?”

He is not wildly optimistic looking forward, in particular, to the government’s accord process, “the university submissions will probably be of higher average quality than 20 years ago, but only a limited pool of people have the knowledge and experience needed to produce a politically feasible policy with a reasonable chance of achieving its goals.”

His thoughts are HERE.
