There’s loads to get into here so don’t hold back…
Off the top of my head:
If so, why, what’s in it for the tax payer?
Also how much – should taxes fund the whole system, or just as much as can be afforded, or less?
And should we treat all subjects the same? If not how do we value them?
If not, how should we fund universities?
What are the implications of a fully privatised system?
Can we compare our actual or a proposed funding model to those of other countries?
How does the funding model affect the education/research?
There are obvious loads more of these but I’ll stop there. Anyone with anything to contribute please chip in!
