1990 Leaflet on Overcrowding in College from The Workers Party May 25, 2010

From 1990 a leaflet on Overcrowding in College produced by The Workers Party.
Presumably a lot of it is still relevant today.
Overcrowding demonstrably affects us all, regardless of place of study, and in all aspects of our student-life: lectures, libraries, catering, accommodation and safety. The greatest irony, however, is that the increased pressures placed on students by overcrowding may well lead to increased failure-rates and ultimately decreased graduate numbers!

The Workers’ Party believes education is not a luxury. It is vital for our economic growth, for a healthy political democracy and for the future well-being of our society. We are totally opposed to all cutbacks, either direct or indirect, in the education system.
