Higher Education in an Active Society: A Policy Study. Final Report.
Etzioni, Amitai; Milner, Murray
This report is divided in four parts. Part I deals with the effects of federal aid to higher education on class inequality, racial inequality, inequality of opportunity, social mobility and the distribution of degrees. Part II proposes a strategy of cross-commitment to three developments: (1) a year of national service; (2) greater protection of teaching from research; and (3) new measures to advance equality of opportunity in higher education. Part III explores the relationship among: (1) selectivity; (2) standards; (3) balance between technical and liberal arts education; and (4) the organizational structure of colleges and universities. Specifically, the focus is on the conditions under which admission criteria can be changed to advance equality of opportunity with little loss in quality of education. Part IV discusses and proposes measures for increasing the separation of teaching from research. (AF)
