This is the trouble with education. No sooner have we got the hang of one new idea or method, learned how to do it, immersed ourselves in it and pinned our hopes on it, than it’s swept away and another is shoved in. Now it’s all quick-change again: lifelong learning and flexible or part-time courses suddenly aren’t so important after all. All we really want now are courses that increase “employability, career prospects and earnings”. I read it on a college website.
