"The government plan for a € 6,000 fine for slow students and their universities will be counterproductive", FEB dean Elmer Sterken states in his FEBlog, "The plan will spark off a tax-avoiding game lowering the quality of education and students avoiding difficult programmes. However, it's not the slow students who will be costly: it's the unmotivated student who will be expensive. If a government budget cut is unavoidable, the better solution is a general tuition fee raise of € 700."
