Higher Education as a Market: A Problem or Solution?
Gibbs, Paul
Studies in Higher Education, v26 n1 p85-94 Mar 2001
Considers notions of the market in British higher education. Suggests that the economic market commoditizes higher education into accreditations earned. Suggests the notion is inadequate to represent achievements of higher level learners. Proposes a conception of higher education as a conversation by respectful and involved colleagues who seek to develop educational relationships rather than transactional deals. (EV)
