Higher Education in Central America: Historical Foundations for Its Future Projection.
Arriaza, Ricardo Sol
Higher Education Policy, v9 n1 p55-66 Mar 1996
Three trends in Central American higher education are examined in historical context: (1) inertia from lack of mobility, bureaucracy, and corporate influence; (2) elitism as a response to budgetary constraints; and (3) attempts to increase responsiveness to educational needs and demands. Issues examined include earlier attempts at change, slow growth in public institutions, uncontrolled enrollment growth, and public funding. (MSE)
