Call You and Yours

Presented by Julian Worricker.

Are government plans to increase access to higher education the right way forward?

In today's programme we debate the government's target to get 50% of under-thirties into higher education by 2010. Is it laudable to spread what university offers more broadly, or is it a recipe for lower academic standards?
