Honors Privatization: A Professor's and Three Students' Responses
Nock, Destenie; Plummer, Justice; Wilson, Ashleigh R.; Cundall, Michael K., Jr.
Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, v15 n1 p49-53 Spr-Sum 2014
Gary Bell's essay, "The Profit Motive in Honors Education," raises important questions about the future of honors education--questions that will have the greatest impact on honors students. The voices of those students are not typically included in discussions about the funding and administration of honors even though they have crucial insights to contribute. The primary goal of this essay is to include those voices in the discussion. Following an introduction by Michael Cundall, Jr., an honors administrator and faculty member at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, three students--Destenie Nock, Justice Plummer, and Ashleigh Wilson--contribute their opinions on the topic of profitizing honors programs, with the overarching theme being the value, not cost, attached to honors education.
