Reviewing Policy: Defending Liberalism on Campus
Weaver-Hightower, Marcus B.; Apple, Michael W.
Educational Policy, v22 n4 p609-620 2008
The authors maintain that higher education has tamely responded to pillory by political conservatives. This essay advocates for Michael Berube's defense of liberalism in higher education, "What's Liberal about the Liberal Arts? Classroom Politics and "Bias" in Higher Education." The writers also counter what they view as conservative attacks on tertiary education in the United States as a supplement to Berube's analysis to better understand the underlying dynamics of the liberal-conservative conflict within the broader field of education and strategies for response. (Contains 3 notes.)
