Citizenship and Higher Educationby James Arthur
Synopses & Reviews
This comparative text considers models of higher education in the UK and the US and individuals' perceptions about the role of university in society.
What are the obligations of the university to society and its communities? What are the virtues of university education? What are the university's ethical responsibilities to its students?
The role of citizenship and civic responsibility in higher education is a highly contested yet crucial element of any consideration of the role of university in society.
This book offers thoughtful insights into this role, outlining the intellectual and practical tensions and pressures which come to bear upon higher education institutions. Wide ranging in scope, it offers perspectives from British, European, Canadian and North American educational environments.
Citizenship and Higher Education will prove stimulating reading for anyone concerned with the ethics of education and the university's place in society - including educationalists, researchers, sociologists and policy-makers.
