¿A public university or a university serving the public?
“I think that right now, the state education system gives guarantees of selection to its teachers, for whom the private sector cannot. It's simply an element of recognition – not criticism – of reality. Having said that, it's clear that there are sectors where private initiatives have been successful that enjoy extraordinary and well-deserved recognition. And the opposite is true, it's the public sectors that need to use it as a mirror and learn.”
“In the United States and Latin America, the distinction between public and private is, fortunately, a little hazier, because when we're talking about it, we don't really distinguish between Berkeley or Stanford and, at this level, there is a difference. But by contrast, they all have a mission to serve the public, which is probably what differentiates them and gives them their stamp of recognition and not of objective linked to private or individual interests.”
