One thing is for certain, until we stand up and begin to promote a vision of education as a social right for all rather than something reserved for those that can pay and for business interests to exploit, we can expect the inequality to continue.

Further, by requiring local institutions to operate in international educational markets, it ensures a serious and continuing challenge to their own standards and quality--to the benefit of all stakeholders.
