Some subscribers to Math-Teach might be interested in a post "Re: How Universities Can Help to Create a Wiser World: Response to Schremmer."

The abstract reads:


ABSTRACT: In response to my post "How Universities Can Help to Create a Wiser World" at <>, Alain Schremmer of the MathEdCC list wrote at <>: ?I think that the show is pretty much all over. See "The Fall of the Faculty: The Rise of the All-Administrative University and Why It Matters." And it is not only universities. At my school, Community College of Philadelphia, mutatis mutandis, things are exactly as described by Ginsberg."

The reference is Ginsberg (2013) at <>. The book description reads in part: "Until very recently, American universities were led mainly by their faculties, which viewed intellectual production and pedagogy as the core missions of higher education. Today, as Benjamin Ginsberg warns in this eye-opening, controversial book, 'deanlets'-- administrators and staffers often without serious academic backgrounds or experience -- are setting the educational agenda."
