Australian Geography and the Corporate Management Paradigm.
Powell, J. M.
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v14 n1 p5-18 1990
Criticizes the intrusion into Australian higher education of the corporate management model. Considers the implications of this mechanization for geography instruction. Notes centralizing tendencies and merger policies with the corresponding market imperatives of efficiency and accountability. Argues that this produces employable manpower but does not educate independent, critical-thinking citizens. (CH)
