Father calls for statutory duty of care equality in Higher Education
In this important article published by HEPI, Bob Abrahart, himself a former lecturer, explores how in 1970, the legal age of adulthood was lowered from 21 to 18 so that now, our children are deemed adults just ten weeks after leaving school or college. This in Bob's words left students "stranded in no man’s land, with no statutory duty of care entitlement". He calls out the disparity between students and staff who are also adults yet are protected by a legal duty of care.
