Synopsis
Undergraduate programmes in colleges and universities are confused tangles of unrelated and specialized electives. Courses aimed at career preparation far outnumber those emphasizing intellectual development. As a result, our graduates are not prepared to enter a workplace where ability to change and flexibility to adapt are facts of life, nor can they become fully contributing members of a rapidly changing society. Drawing on his experience as a professor, chief academic officer, and association leader, Schaefer exposes the problems that cut across all of academia, such as student consumerism, overspecialization of disciplines, and a system that rewards esoteric publishing over good teaching. He suggests specific changes that must take place if the education of the young is to be really effective.
