Education Reading

In late December, early January there were two separate, superb articles written–one in the Los Angeles Review of Books by Steven Brint (called “The Educational Lottery: On the Four Kinds of Heretics Attacking the Gospel of Education”) and and one in the New York Review of Books by Tony Grafton (called “Our Universities: Why Are They Failing?”) that each covered a range of books on Higher Ed Reform, providing, together, a rather detailed and finely analyzed look at the criticisms and proposed solutions of higher education reform.

Together they cover 12 books and provide a thoughtful look at the primary components of the higher ed conversation taking place nationally all around us.

I was going to put some excerpts up but so much of both is so great that I couldn’t choose. Do yourself a favor and check them both out (HERE and HERE)..
