Policy Papers : University charges in historic perspective
- Since 2010 the state’s teaching grant to universities is changed into income-contingent loans built to drive the college system through choice and competition. This paper shows just just how it has occur, and places it in a perspective that is longer-term.
- State support for universities has a lengthier history than is normally expected, and permitted pupil fees become kept low. Even before 1914, outside Oxford and Cambridge, charges often just made well below 1 / 2 of university earnings. Making pupils spend the full price of their training is just an innovation that is radical.
