Page 110-126


This paper is an attempt to convince that non–public universities have nothing to offer in the higher education improvement. Although the author rejects all arguments concerning the surplus – value of the private or non – state sector in the universities, he underlines that any legislation putting in order this matter should co–estimate the national planning, the conditions of functioning, the access of students, the curriculum, the status of academic staff etc, without authorizing many serious deviations from the ordinary regulations.The control of these institutions must be assumed by the Parliament, the National Committee for Education and a special Independent Authority.
