Re: Cherry picking much?

Universities only teach to provide a constant source of new researchers, their primary aim is research and the teaching of people who are not good enough to be researchers is a by product.

If private corporations are taking over research then they can to a large degree take on the teaching of new potential researchers either by doing it directly or by funding students through the newly privatised universities.
