Such an investigation would certainly tell the Executive what most of us who work in FE already know: that courses which are designed to meet the needs of the construction and engineering industries are expensive to run and therefore hold little attraction for our profit-obsessed, un-elected and unaccountable boards of management.
FE colleges should put the social and economic needs of the community ahead of the desire to make a profit. They will only do so if they are placed back under democratic control.
