Lithuania's higher education

Ideas I agree with

1.The period of hardships started when Lithuania regained independence and has been getting worse ever since.
2. Higher education is not only for bright students, but for paying as well.
3.The quality of education does not only depend on tutors, teaching infrastructure – it also depends on students and their ability to receive education

Ideas I disagree with

1.The university diplomas are bought and sold: “If you have money, you just pay up and serve the time".
2.The Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development calls such a situation, where one student pays for studies and another does not, discriminatory.

3.All citizens have an equal right to receive higher education.
