Can We Afford to Improve Liberal Education? And Can We Afford Not to Improve It?
Tobias, Sheila
Liberal Education, v68 n2 p87-94 Sum 1982
The social context of the debate over liberal education is discussed in terms of the pressures on deans to phase out underpopulated fields of study, the pressures on educators to produce measurably competent graduates for an ever more technological economy, and a general questioning of liberal and humanistic values.
