The Future of Higher Education: Some Speculations and Suggestions.
Mood, Alexander M.
After an extensive study of the effective use of resources in colleges and universities the author offers some suggestions that envision radical rearrangements of higher education. Among his ideas are the following: (1) entrance requirements should be eliminated; (2) colleges and universities should be open to everyone the first year, and all youths should take their first year of college in residency away from home; (3) learning after the first year should be recurrent and interlaced with career experience; (4) institutions of higher education should be fully financed by tuition; (5) higher education should abandon its certification function; (6) more attention should be given to assisting students to make appropriate career choice; and (7) lectures for standard courses should be broadcast over national or regional TV by university consortia.
