Stanley Fish: The Value of Higher Education Made Literal
A fascinating article from the New York Times journalist Stanley Fish on the value of higher education, very relevant to the UK in the light of current changes. A thought provoking commentary on how many people reach their potential not through choice but through opportunity as how many of us really know what we want to do or be till those doors are opened and we are welcomed through and how the ‘logic of privatization’ under the guise of consumer choice is changing the face of our educational system from being conceived as a public good to that of a privet benefit. A sad irony that such an article appeared in an American publication and now here in the UK. http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/12/13/the-value-of-higher-education-made-literal/
