Rosy prospectuses ‘misleading’ students

“Paul Temple, reader in higher education management at the Institute of Education, University of London, said that Dr Bradley’s basic argument was correct. “Universities do sometimes bend the facts to breaking point, and that should stop,” he said. But he cautioned that some of the paper’s criticisms “imply that he’s setting the bar very high” in terms of how data are presented, and that some of the points it makes “verge on the pedantic”.”

Pedantic or not, someone should develop a truth app that we could point any website to, to easily highlight these ‘inaccuracies’.
