Some of my fellow grad students are getting tired of me alluding to articles about the challenges and problems of higher education as it is currently practiced, so I thought I’d put up some links to articles I found recently on the subject. See the following:
New York Review of Books reviews 4 recent books on what’s wrong with American colleges
A blog post about over-stressed students and aimless curriculum
A cool piece from the Chronicle of Higher Ed about a professor’s attempt to promote cultural literacy in his students.
Finally, a piece from the Atlantic in the vein of “the growth in higher education is an economic bubble that will and should burst soon”, which is a larger genre than many of my comrades in higher education seem to realize.
