요약
"Contentious debates over the benefits-or drawbacks-of a liberal education are as old as America itself. From Benjamin Franklin to the Internet pundits, critics of higher education have attacked its irrelevance and elitism-often calling for more vocational instruction. Thomas Jefferson, by contrast, believed that nurturing a student's capacity for lifelong learning was useful for science and commerce while also being essential for democracy. In this provocative contribution to the disputes, university president Michael S. Roth focuses on important moments and seminal thinkers in America's long-running argument over vocational vs. liberal education. Conflicting streams of thought flow through American intellectual history: W. E. B. Du Bois's humanistic principles of pedagogy for newly emancipated slaves developed in opposition to Booker T. Washington's educational utilitarianism, for example. Jane Addams's emphasis on the cultivation of empathy and John Dewey's calls for education as civic engagement were rejected as impractical by those who aimed to train students for particular economic tasks. Roth explores these arguments (and more), considers the state of higher education today, and concludes with a stirring plea for the kind of education that has, since the founding of the nation, cultivated individual freedom, promulgated civic virtue, and instilled hope for the future"--

저자소개

마이클 로스(지은이)

교수이자 대학 행정가이며 웨슬리언대학교의 16대 총장이다. 뉴욕 브루클린에서 태어난 마이클 로스는 그의 집안에서 대학에 간 첫 세대이다. 웨슬리언대학에서 3년 만에 학업을 마치고 수석 졸업의 영예를 얻었으며, 이후 1984년 프린스턴대학교에서 박사학위를 받았다. 2000년 캘리포니아 예술대학의 총장이 된 그는 교양교육과 학제 간 연구를 강조하는 방향으로 학교의 커리큘럼을 바꾸기 위해 노력했다. 웨슬리언대학교의 총장이 된 이후엔 커리큘럼에 힘을 불어넣고, 인플레이션에 따르는 등록금 인상 중단과 3년 과정의 학위 프로그램 등 웨슬리언의 교육을 변화시켰다. 그는 가난한 학생들을 위한 대출을 보조금으로 대체했고, 무거운 금전적 빚 없이 대학을 졸업하는 일을 가능하도록 만들었다. 이 책은 미국 대학 교육의 미래와 씨름하고 있는 학생과 그들의 가족, 교수진과 정책 입안자들을 위한 훌륭한 도구 역할을 했다.
