Letter to the Spectator

A letter from Chief Executive Maddalaine Ansell has been published in The Spectator challenging a recent article which argued that the ‘primary purpose of universities should be to create an elite’.

She writes, “It is far more important that we have a highly educated population able to rise to the challenges of the 21st century than that we create a small golden cohort.”
