ABSTRACT
The article discusses a report on the college building crisis in Great Britain. An inquiry headed by Sir Andrew Foster found that the college building crisis, which saw 144 projects put on hold in 2008 due to a chronic gap in funding, could have been avoided. Foster claims that the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) bore responsibility for falling to keep a proper cumulative tally of the accelerating demand from colleges for funding.
