Commercialization Trends in Higher Education: The Costa Rican Case.
Guido, Maria de Los Angeles
International Journal of Educational Reform, v8 n3 p228-43 Jul 1999
This case study of the commercialized teaching profession in Costa Rican higher education urges circumspection; the term "efficient and productive change" camouflages the state-sanctioned commodification of the instructional enterprise. Courses are becoming proprietary courseware, machinery for selling intellectual capital is emerging, and diploma mills are being created. (51 references) (MLH)
