Elite and Mass Higher Education in Britain: A Regressive Model?
Neave, Guy R.
Comparative Education Review, v29 n3 p347-61 Aug 1985
British higher education has failed to move beyond elitism and endorse the mass model expected during the early 1970s. Examines government funding; differences in administrative practices, including student selection, between "private" universities and "public" polytechnics; government policy assumptions about student demography; inadequacy of secondary school preparation; and effects of economic recession. Contrasts British with continental arrangements for higher education. (SV)
