Higher Education

by Paul Shaker & Elizabeth Heilman - 2004
An increasingly broad array of cultural and institutional forces are at work creating a new “common sense” of education that maligns or manipulates the corpus of educational research and attacks promising practices and reforms. In addition, a new type of education scholarship has emerged that is delivered in alternative ways, funded through unorthodox sources, motivated by nonacademic purposes, and supported through direct access to media and political organizations, including the federal government. This article examines the details of the new commonsense policy and rhetoric and considers what is being lost and what educators need to do to restore to public education its position of civic and moral leadership in our society.

Community-higher education-school partnerships should be the core strategy for improving schools and schooling systems from pre-K through college. We base our argument on two propositions: 1) committed, multi-sectoral community partnerships are a prerequisite for sustained school- and system-wide educational reform, and without such partnerships, meaningful educational reform will not happen, and 2) sustained, system-wide educational reform requires transforming the educational system from pre-K through colleges and universities. Therefore, higher educational institutions must be partners in and strategic components of sustained, system-wide educational reform.

by Jacquelyn McCroskey - 2003
The next section of this chapter examines sources of dissonance between research universities and community-based efforts to implement interprofessional collaboration and comprehensive services.
