Credits, Curriculum, and Control in Higher Education: Cross-National Perspectives.
Mason, Terrence C.; Arnove, Robert F.; Sutton, Margaret
Higher Education, v42 n1 p107-37 Jul 2001
Examines higher education in Indonesia, Nicaragua, and Vietnam to illustrate how use of a credit system is linked to policies and institutions associated with capitalist, market-based economies, and how the credit system, embedded within a network of other educational practices, has transformed the university into an institution focused more on narrow, utilitarian aims than on global pursuit of knowledge.
