Bologna in America: The Spellings Commission and Neo-Liberal Higher Education Policy
Greenwood, Davydd J.
Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, v2 n1 p1-38 Spr 2009
This article summarises/analyses the higher education reforms proposed by the "Spellings Commission" in the United States on quality assurance and accountability, and draws attention to the links I see between these reform proposals and the Bologna Process. I trace a brief history of the Spellings Commission and analyse it in order to produce questions for discussion about the "parallel" processes of reform in higher education in the U.S. and Europe. (Contains 6 notes.)
