Paul’s Pick: a Free Article on the Cost of Higher Education from Dissent

Every month, Paul Chase in the Penn Press Journals department invites our blog readers to download a complimentary article from one of our many scholarly journals.

DissentPaul's pick for November is "The Corporatization of Higher Education"  by Nicholaus Mills, professor of American Studies at Sarah Lawrence College. The article appears in the Fall 2012 issue of Dissent. Mills writes:

When our current period of slow economic growth will end is anybody’s guess, but even when it does end, colleges and universities will certainly not be rolling back their prices. These days, it is not just the economic climate in which our colleges and universities find themselves that determines what they charge and how they operate; it is their increasing corporatization.

handful of political journals read most regularly by U.S. intellectuals.
