Distributive Justice and Distributive Quality.
Wexler, Jacqueline Grennan
American higher education in this century has been almost schizophrenic in its development. As money and knowledge began to spread more distributively across the population, the population began to demand for its children a more equitable access into the world of the more privileged. Education and privilege were highly correlated. Greater access is forcing higher education to be honest about liberal and career emphases in recruitment and curricula. It is not enough for administration and a few faculty to become actively concerned with learned-centered reform. The learner must be the center of his universe. The learner must be able to seek out persons and programs that respond to his or her perceived needs. The higher education institutions must perceive and appreciate the"universe" of need and opportunity if our universities are to be related to and supported by the whole people. Distributive rather than hierarchical quality is necessary in higher education if we are to share in the creation of a world of distributive justice. (Author/PG)
