Finn, Chester E., Jr.
Educational Record, v78 n1 p10-16 Win 1997
Argues that in higher education, values and priorities of the enterprise's "producers" have little in common with those of the "consumers," and identifies areas in which this is apparent, including tuition, college choice, selection of a president, program development, faculty rewards, state subsidies, institutional budgeting, and school calendars. Suggests a balance of producer and consumer priorities is best. (MSE)
