    "Whether it should be made easier for them to access university education becomes an ongoing concern, which incurs a highly-charged debate"

    Hi, I just can't understand the above sentence structure and I can't get the meaning as well. I have hardly seen putting the conjunction at the beginning of a sentence. I picked this up from one of the IELTS essay band-6.

    The question or idea of "Whether it should be made easier for them to access university education" is the subject of the sentence. The verb is "becomes an ongoing concern". And that concern then goes on to "incur a highly-charged debate".

    It should be induce rather than incur.

    The verb is "becomes". "An ongoing concern" is a predicate nominative, which is modified by a relative clause.
