What's gone wrong at our colleges and
universities—and how to get American higher education back on track
quarter of a million dollars. It's the going tab for four years at most top-tier
universities. Why does it cost so much and is it worth it?
sociologist Andrew Hacker and New York Times writer Claudia Dreifus make an
incisive case that the American way of higher education, now a $420
billion-per-year business, has lost sight of its primary mission: the education
of young adults. Going behind the myths and mantras, they probe the true
performance of the Ivy League, the baleful influence of tenure, an unhealthy
reliance on part-time teachers, and the supersized bureaucracies which now have
a life of their own.
As Hacker and Dreifus call for a thorough overhaul of a
self-indulgent system, they take readers on a road trip from Princeton to
Evergreen State to Florida Gulf Coast University, revealing those faculties and
institutions that are getting it right and proving that teaching and learning
can be achieved—and at a much more reasonable price.
