Negotiating the Community College Institutional Accountability Environment: A Deweyan Perspective
Harbour, Clifford P.; Day, Michael
New Directions for Community Colleges, n148 p5-15 Win 2009
Institutional accountability programs may present ethical dilemmas for community college leaders. Some of these dilemmas may be resolved by relying on the authority of the traditional mission. However, in some instances, the mission may be inadequate to check this form of state encroachment. We propose that campus leaders review John Dewey's philosophy of education to gain insights into how their institutions might negotiate dilemmas not addressed by the traditional mission.
