ABSTRACT
The authors of this article continue a critical dialogue with Joseph Galbo regarding their analysis of higher education in Canada. The authors frame their critique of the system of higher education in Canada as a matter of corporatization contributing to grade inflation and student disengagement. The challenges that the authors faced in dealing with trends toward student disengagement within the millennial generation are described. Issues associated with the treatment of students who do not succeed in higher education are described. The analysis of the National Survey of Student Engagement within the authors' book is also addressed.
