Problem

Lax university standards

Other Names:
Undemanding college courses
Low standards of higher education
Claim:

Standards in many institutions of higher learning are falling. In the competition for government subsidies, many accept students with little or no selection criteria. Teachers and students alike claim that higher education is increasingly teaching what should have been learned in secondary school. There is also a pervading erosion of entry standards into postgraduate programmes, lowering the status of Masters and Doctoral degrees.
