'No fee degrees' university plan

We need to make the education system biased towards people who live near Universities? Oh, sorry, I didn't realise. Yes, of course people who live in big cities are far more entitled to this level of education then those of us from the countryside.

So, whatever happened to the idea of fair and equal access to education? Everytime there's a change to the funding system we seem to move further and further away from it. It's like the government are actively sitting down trying to think of new biases to add to the system.

How about this for an idea: use income tax to subsidise the education system to allow access to regardless of wealth, location, etc. It's perfectly fair as those that have been through university tend to be paid more and it would help even up the wealth too. Oh, yes, I forgot, we couldn't possibly do that, the rich clearly need their money...

No- Cleethorpes- nearest Uni (at least when I was that age) was Hull- and the Humber Bridge tolls are really high. It doesn't lookisolated on the map, but it is an incredibly isolated place both geographically and culturally. There is a Uni in Lincoln now, but again that is an hour away as the road are so, well, rural.
