Kirk, Russell
December 1975
National Review;12/5/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 47, p1352
The article presents views of Dr. William B. Boyd, president of the University of Washington, about higher education in the United States. According to Boyd, this is a time of retrenchment and reform in the higher learning. He adds that the coming phase of reaction and reform must be a value-driven model, an educational design with purpose and form guaranteed by requirements.
