Good read on turning education into a market.

"In  2018-19 Manchester City FC had revenues of £535.2m. Manchester United had £627m. The University of Manchester made more than £1bn."

“We’re in a condition of managerialist realism, beyond which we can’t think,” says Michael Hrebeniak, director of studies in English at Wolfson College, Cambridge. “An obsession with the business discourse of procedure, training and skills has eroded the trust in freewheeling encounter that is crucial to the life of the mind.” A professor of architecture says: “We have to sit through lectures of flow diagrams on how the new structure works. It’s like tractor production quotas in the USSR.”

Critics of the current arrangements often look back to the time before loans and fees, in the 70s and 80s, when the state paid both your fees and a maintenance grant. “I came from a background where people did not go to university,” the architecture professor tells me, “and it did far more than provide me with my career. It enriched my life.” Now, he says, “with the debt that students end up in, the question ‘will I get a job?’ becomes the frame through which education is looked at. It makes them much less likely to take the kind of risks that are experimental in terms of finding new knowledge.”

...post worker with a shielding partner who in the first lock down was allowed to self isolate asked why he now had to work. The question went unanswered but apparently travelling more than 5 miles for a remote walk is the real concern!

Vaccine question...
at 09:41 10 Jan 2021

Is the protection afforded having been an asymptomatic carrier of the virus equal to, better than or worse than that offered by the vaccine in terms of efficacy and longevity or is it not known?
