Higher Education: The Albatross around the Neck of Our Public Schools.
Clinchy, Evans
Phi Delta Kappan, v75 n10 p744-51 Jun 1994
Like medieval war games of dialectical argument, today's education model is based on idea of competition, a scholastic sorting process aimed at fixing every child's place in life. So long as access to higher education rests on standardized test scores and/or high school grades in conventional subjects, higher education institutions will subject lower schools to disconnected, decontextualized educational mission.
