On the Failures of Educational Policy
Astin, Alexander W.
Change, 9, 9, 40-3, Sep 77
According to a national study, many recent policy changes in American higher education have not only failed to enhance educational programs but have contributed to their deterioration. Focus is on the expansion of the public sector, the shift toward larger institutions, the eclipse of single-sex colleges, public community colleges, deemphasis on the residential experience, reliance on loans, and open admissions.
