Cambridge protests save the architecture school
has been announced that Cambridge university has backed down from
closing down the world famous architecture department after it voiced
doubts about its level of research.
This decision was based purely on a financial basis and cut directly
across the interests of a decent education system that should reward
such exemplary teaching institutions rather than put them into tables
and leagues that have little to do with quality and worth.
The protests had been supported by the NUS and included very strong
demonstrations (pictured) with high profile names like the implausibly
posh Griff Rhys Jones.
This success is very welcome proving that ground level campaigns can
be successful and will be welcome news for those in Exeter who are
fighting similar proposals.
