The Right take on higher education.

Higher-Ed Reform Ideas


In this week’s Pope Center Clarion Call, Jane Shaw discusses ideas for change that she has come across in several recent higher-education conferences. The ideas she likes all have a “bottom-up” character rather than a “top-down” one. I strongly agree that beneficial change is apt to come from the “little platoons” and not from higher ed’s generals. For the most part, the generals are too busy with fundraising and their obsession over “diversity” to do any good.
