Abstract:A comment on Johnston R J 1994 'Resources, student:staff ratios and teaching quality in British higher education: some speculations aroused by Jenkins and Smith' Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers NS 18 359-65

Research aimed at enhancing our understanding of the multiple influences on student performance may have to confront the possibility of a dilution of standards.
