"The most significant book in higher education in recent years"
Read the linked review. Shouldn’t it be titled “Academically Sinking Fast”? I realize I am a dinosaur, but it’s becoming more and more obvious that the Emperor has no clothes. Yet I see very little dissent and complaint about the current trend in Higher Ed. Are faculty getting so lazy that they welcome the reduced expectations and responsibilities? Are faculty too busy with their hobbies, second jobs, research grants, etc. that they welcome the reduced expectations and responsibilities? Don’t parents care? It’s obvious the legislature doesn’t have a clue.
