As reported last week, thousands of foreign students will continue to enjoy the full benefits of the very worst of British education - that is if the Department for Education and Skills has anything to do with it.
Whitehall wants English language schools to be allowed to become "registered" and continue taking students from overseas - without accreditation.
These colleges are destined to be a fast-growing sector. So, just as FE institutions have the Association of Colleges, these outfits should have a national body to make sure ministers listen to their needs even more attentively than they do now.
But what should the new body be called? The Crap English Language Schools Association, suggested one of my chums from the accredited side of the business. How unkind.
