Why do your writers think we need to know this? I would still read the Independent if Ms Barber had flunked her O-levels at Croyden Comprehensive; maybe this would prove a less desirable autobiographical reference to drop into her articles, however.
Perhaps you could set aside a corner one day for the whole editorial team to list their academic credentials. Then we might be spared this objectionable Oxbridge-dropping.
