The short history of a curious idea.
2008: Promise legislation by fall; fail to deliver. Make (up) excuses.
Maybe a problem with finding students – something your humble e-scribbler noted as a major deficiency in the original consultants’ report – is another reason for the inexplicable delay in the whole Grenfell autonomy “piece.”
There is no analysis of the possible student market. This is a critical shortcoming since the report authors recommend doubling the size of the student population in short order, from a current enrolment of about 1,150 (not including 200 nursing students) to about 2,000.
In any event, just add Grenfell “autonomy’ as another government initiative on the MIA list.
