There's a case that students, who could be the next generation of leading scientists, architects, designers and mathematicians, could be slipping through the net through lack of awareness about visual/spatial thinking and the skills that those with a bias towards such thinking can bring to the table.
The fact is that as a graduate, you realise that on leaving university you are confronted with a ladder infinitely longer, more complex and scarier than the one you had to climb in education. This means that even more optimism and drive is required to tackle it.
Student Rights, a two-man group with a history of pressuring British universities to prevent certain individuals that it deems to be 'extremists' - frequently Muslims - from speaking to students on campus, has issued a statement in response to widespread criticism of its activities. It contains several easily refutable arguments.
A recent exhibition of what organisers have termed the University of the Arts London's 'brightest and best students' has provided a refreshing and necessary glimpse into some of the artists likely to play a significant role in the future of British art.

Student Rights is seeking to police, not 'protect' students and its activities should be seen as part of the 'Cold War on British Muslims'. Its activities feed into an increasingly entrenched discourse of Islamophobia endorsed by much of the government and mainstream media. Universities should be wary of its lobbying efforts, the media should interrogate its misleading research and FOSIS should be commended for standing up to its bullying.
Anti-Muslim rhetoric has reached such a fever pitch, and in the least expected places of all; British universities - which were once the beacons of free thinking and tolerance.
