Educational Teaching and Research under Scrutiny.
Farquhar, Robin H.
This paper contains the text of a talk on how the business community should cooperate with higher education in Canada through their mutual association, the Corporate-Higher Education Forum. The paper briefly considers the differential impact of size of university in building cooperation with the business community and argues that size has only a secondary impact on capacity to cooperate in educational research. The paper goes on to look at the Forum including a review of recent activities of the Forum and the suggestion that other associations and bodies in Canada may be capturing the educational research field and addressing the issues that concern the nation while the Forum appears not to be addressing these issues. A review of the Forum's journal for the past 3 years found that of over 100 articles, not a single one was related to the research on kindergarten through 12th grade education or the preparation of professionals for schools. The paper argues that due to the lack of input from educational researchers, professionals dealing with the education crisis do so in a reflexive, strident, and defensive manner at significant cost to the nation.
