What does it mean and is it a good or bad thing for working-class students?

"Last month, Labour politician David Lammy called for Oxbridge to give lower grade offered to working-class students."

It looks like a typo (it is certainly ungrammatical). I think that it should read:

Last month, Labour politician David Lammy called for Oxbridge to give lower-grade offers to working-class students.

In other words, Oxford and Cambridge should make it academically easier for working-class students to gain entry to their courses.
