Hacia la Nueva Reforma (Toward the New Reform).
Ribeiro, Darcy
A new wave of reform is needed for Latin American universities suffering from structural rigidity, duplicity, inefficiency, and lack of community. The structural crisis in the university reflects the general social crisis in which society is pressured by opposing forces leading it toward either historical modernization or evolutionary acceleration. Historical modernization is the force that has been active, perpetuating social stratification and neocolonial dependency. Evolutionary acceleration is exemplified in North America, Japan, Germany, and socialist countries, where there is intentional movement toward the restructuring of society from its roots with the objective of organizing it to serve itself and not others. Acceleration leads people to leap from one historical era to another, creating a new socio-economic formation with the capability of controlling its own destiny. (VM)
