The pressure of inclusion has diminished the quality of higher education

The greatest danger to college independence is the “inclusion” battle tossing open ways to students to the detriment of norms, as per humanist Frank Furedi.

“The approach of incorporation is centered around getting bums on seats and is apathetic regarding quality and substance,” Professor Furedi said. “The weight of consideration has decreased the nature of advanced education; review expansion is one indication of this improvement.”

The emeritus teacher of human science from the University of Kent in Britain partook in a week ago’s Center for Independent Studies board exchange, “What’s happened to the college” — the title taken from Professor Furedi’s most recent book distributed by Routledge.
