The Last New Mission
Pallante, James J.
Educational Record, 59, 2, 185-8, Spr 78
The role of higher education is discussed in this essay with regard to the "new mission" of basic learning skills. It is suggested that teaching basic skills should be pressed back on the precollegiate educational units where it belongs, and that colleges must defend the idea that they are institutions for higher studies and advanced intellectual pursuits.
