ABSTRACT
The author responds to criticism of his review of the book "Ivory Tower Blues: A University System in Crisis" written by James Côté and Anton Allahar. Research in that book addressing student engagement in Canada is analysed. Issues relating to the assessment of the so-called millennial generation are noted. The author believes that Côté and Allahar have developed a critique of grade inflation and narcissism that is indistinguishable from the neoconservative analysis found in the book "The Closing of the American Mind" by Allan Bloom.
