This is a very thoughtful set of questions about the crisis in UK and US universities, appropriately brought to various sites of the university through three interventions that engage members of that "community" itself in the critique. Given that part of the critique, however, is that the university was once conceived as a public good and it has become increasingly privatized, where else in the public sphere might interventions around this question be significant? What about secondary schools, for example? Has the author considered interventions in other locations?
