Academic Jeremiad: The Neoconservative View of American Higher Education.
Jayne, Edward
Change, v23 n3 p30-41 May-Jun 1991
Recent books presenting the neoconservative criticism of higher education are reviewed including books by Allan Bloom, Charles Sykes, Jacques Barzun, Peter Shaw, Roger Kimball, and Thomas Short. Common assumptions include the worsening of American education resulting from warped curriculum reform and distorted performance standards. Agreement with the neoconservatives' diagnosis but not their explanations is expressed. (MSE)
