Higher Education's Caste System
College Student Journal, v38 n1 p9 Mar 2004
In this article, the author discusses the history of the present caste system in higher education. He shows how the public's perception of this caste system is based on image and not usually on the quality of teaching and curriculum in colleges and universities. Finally, he discusses a model for accessibility to higher education and how higher education could be more democratic than it is now especially for so-called unprepared students.
