Privatizing Public Higher Education: Beliefs that Fuel the Conversation
Meyer, Katrina A.
Planning for Higher Education, v34 n3 p34-44 2006
What fuels the push toward privatization of public higher education institutions? This article attempts to unravel the nine beliefs that underlie conversations taking place in state legislatures and on higher education campuses and then asks, Will privatization work? How will it work for the state's citizens, the states, and institutions? The answer is mixed and depends upon how certain questions are answered and how much faith one places in the higher education market.
