"Standards Will Drop"--and Other Fears about the Equality Agenda in Higher Education
Brink, Chris
Higher Education Management and Policy, v21 n1 p11-30 2009
I discuss, on the basis of experience in Australia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom, some common fears and negative opinions about the equality agenda in higher education. These include: (1) "Standards will drop."; (2) "Our reputation will suffer."; (3) "It's not our problem."; (4) "It's social engineering"; (5) "It's unfair."; and (6) "It's a waste of time."
