Champaign Report. A Conference on Educational Reform -- A Student View.
This document presents a report of the proceedings of a conference at which student leaders from all types of colleges and universities all over the country attempted to answer the question, "What should be done to reform American higher education?" At the bottom of every philosophical system there is a fundamental conception of man. The students tried to envision an educational system compatable with a belief in the basic rationality and decency of the individual on the one hand, and the belief in man's absolute freedom of choice on the other. Interms of actual academic reform, the students were more interested in the spirit in which things were done than in specific goals, programs, and structural changes. The students generally felt that the present system would work well as it is if the people running it were differently motivated--if they oriented programs toward the individual first, last, and foremost.
