So our dispute is over. Good! I also think it’s very good that the hidden workers in Higher Education are being recognized for their contribution…but I’m not sure how public perceptions of academics may have been influenced by our action. We’ve lived through a status erosion and our working conditions (group sizes, accommodation and so on) have generally followed a downward trend. I’m pleased students will now get their marks, their degrees and so on, but worry about the future….particularly now Prince Charles is into teacher training!
