Education and the Marketplace: Conflicting Arenas? Response to "A Postmodern Explanation of Student Consumerism in Higher Education."
Eisenberg, Anne F.
Teaching Sociology, v25 n4 p328-32 Oct 1997
Considers assumptions made in by Delucchi (Michael) and Smith (William L.) (1997) in their postmodern explanation of student consumerism. Suggests, instead, that problems encountered in college classrooms are more likely the result of two interacting social forces: (1) educators' changing pedagogy; and (2) shifting classroom dynamics. Discusses implications of this understanding for changing classroom dynamics. (DSK)
