    Top university teachers get twenty percent rise.

    Post by Angie baby on Sat 22 Jan 2011, 1:05 pm

    The Tory newspaper, The Telegraph, has drawn attention to the fact that last year over 950 top lecturers and Vice Chancellors, who now get paid more than the Prime Minister, at the top universities got a twenty percent payrise while the students were hit by a rise to 9,000 of education fees.

    It seems that the fatcats are still getting the cream while the poorer students will just not be, in many cases, able to pay these sky-high fees.

    Read this and if you don't get angry I will be surprised: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/educationnews/8274663/Row-over-hike-in-university-vice-chancellors-pay.html

    Well spotted babes ! I had missed that one.

    It is a bit of a shock that it is a Tory tome that is highlighting this for a change.

    Now we are going to see the top educators in the top universities being head-hunted just like they do the top bankers.

    And here was me thinking that the big money that is going to be poured into the Ivy-League universities would go towards producing better education and better technology for the students.

    There are places that should be protected from the rabid free-market and it is the places and people who have plenty of financial seccurity that should be targeted by any government wanting to save money.

    Education and the NHS are the most important two categories that should come under this kind of protection.

    Just look what has happened recently: both of these essential services have been severely attacked by the government.
