How first-generation students can inspire their siblings

Wednesday 14:31 GMT

"While the entrenched discourse about first-generation students may construct them as 'at risk' of attrition and therefore as 'risky' students, the narratives presented here provide a counter to this, acknowledging the potential they can offer in terms of widening participation and support among under-represented groups," it says. "How we conceptualise these students needs to change, with them and their families reimagined as a key resource for family learning, social mobility and university practice."

Preening college admissions officers and entitled celebrities -- here’s why the whole scandal was inevitable

Monday 20:00 GMT

The celebrity college-admissions cheating scandal has two clear takeaways: an elite college degree has taken on wildly inflated importance in American society, and the sports-industrial complex enjoys wildly inflated power within universities.

The unquenchable desire of college admissions officers to engineer racial diversity led to a cheating scandal far more consequential than this one. Michael Landry and his wife ran a vaunted college prep school in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, that subjected its students to sadistic physical abuse and emotional humiliation, while inventing their college credentials out of whole cloth.

Wednesday 09:00 GMT
