Commentary #1: Why the Conceptualization of Students as Consumers Need Not Imply Limited Educational Vision.
Journal of General Education, v44 n4 p222-26 1995
Provides a defense of the "consumer" metaphor for education, which holds that students are the consumers of a parcel of higher education services. Argues that consumers can play important roles in the production and delivery processes and that the metaphor can improve the educational quality and increase teacher accountability. (MAB)
