A LEADING academic is citing the education system as a key argument for Catalan independence.

Antonio Cabrales, Professor of Economics at UCL, left the same post at Carlos III University of Madrid because of ‘Spain’s stagnant university system’.

“Catalonia has managed to rise above some of the bureaucratic challenges that have plagued Spain’s universities but institutions in the region are still choking under the straitjacket of organisational laws,” said Barcelona Pompeu Fabra University Economics Professor Mas-Colell.

He cited the example that all professors in Spanish universities must be civil servants, while others complained of poor salaries and red tape preventing international recruitment.
