Oxbridge - shooting the messenger on access

Following my campaign calling on Oxbridge to improve their access, I spoke to Times Higher Education and the Times Educational Supplement about the universities' response.

Oxford and Cambridge have been defensive and seem determined to hide their failings instead of looking at themselves.

As I said: "It is all excuses: it's the child's fault it's the school's fault, it is the education system's fault. It is never, ever, ever the college's fault, never the tutor's fault, never any acknowledgement that the burden for this young person [to go to Oxbridge] is a considerable burden".
