Education: Crisis, what crisis?

Cranmer [here] has this post on the difficulties of student Christian societies in our brave new contemporary university culture.

"Honestly, whatever happened to freedom of speech, freedom of religion and of association? This is a university – an English university – in which its student body apparently has no remote understanding of what it is to be educated in the liberal arts tradition, or any appreciation of what it is to live in a liberal democracy."

The real problem seems to be allowing those who are essentially illiterate (but who may have a certain facility in passing increasingly easy and narrowly-based 'A level' examinations) to attend a university in the first place.
