Summary

VIENNA-- The Austrian government earlier this week approved plans for a major shake-up of the country's university system. Proponents say the proposal, if approved by Parliament, would infuse fresh blood into a system that has become sclerotic. Some critics, however, are angry over a loss of permanent jobs, while others charge that the reforms will be half-hearted and underfunded.
