Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria, Wellington. Vol. 22, No. 9. Thursday, August 13, 1959
But this is seen to be less simple than it looks. What about the Training College Students getting extra qualifications? What about people who have taken jobs because employers have been prepared to take them with incomplete degrees?
One thing is certain. No one has attempted to find, out general classifications into which part-time students fall.
No one seems to be able to tell us just how many real no-hopers there are among the part-timers. And most definitely no one can justify a purge of part-timers till he can prove a large number of them to be feckless in their aims and in their work. And this is a great deal to say of anybody, let alone a group of students in search of higher education.
