On the meaning of the university by Eric Ashby( Book )

5 editions published between 1976 and 1994 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The meaning of education is addressed in this book of philosophical essays by seven authors. Focus is on education in the context of the issues that currently confront students, teachers, educational institutions, and people concerned with the quality of contemporary life. The volume examines the cultural foundations of society and finds the meaning of a university in knowledge, its intrinsic value and its uses, and in reason and reasonableness. "Reconciliation of Tradition and Modernity in Universities," by Lord Eric Ashby, confronts one of the decisive problems that education generates as it attempts to move into new territory while preserving the authentic values of the past. In "Democracy and Distinction in American Education," Brand Blanshard treats another basic dilemma: the apparent conflict of the ideal of democracy with the ideal of individual distinction. In "The Individual and Society," John Gardner examines the university's role in achieving both individuality and strength in social institutions. T.R. McConnell deals with the question: Do we have a "Surfeit or Dearth of Highly Educated People?" Mina Rees in her essay, "The Ivory Tower and the Marketplace," sorts out the questions that must be asked by all educators who seriously believe that the university of the coming decades must be responsive to the practical interests of society while preserving its task as creator of knowledge and wisdom. In "Forces for Change in American Higher Education," David Pierpont Gardner argues that the university of the future must accommodate a variety of forms and structures. The introductory essay suggests that the philosophy of education is a function of the value structure of the culture. (Lbh)
Higher education and government : an uneasy alliance by W. Todd Furniss( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leaders from government and the higher education community provide a philosophical but pragmatic discussion of such topics as curriculum, admissions, research funding, and financial support. Compiled from papers presented at the 61st annual meeting of the American Council on Education, this volume offers the viewpoints of 22 institutional administrators, college presidents, government officials and other education leaders on the interaction between higher education and government. The papers are grouped into sections on living with change; who shall teach; what shall be taught; who shall study; who decides about research; who decides what to spend; who champions the institution; and agents for social change. Papers and authors include: Freedom with Responsibility (Howard G. Bowen); The Limits of Growth (Alice M. Rivlin); Academic Freedom and Retirement (Marjorie Downing Wagner); Defending the Power to Appoint (John S. Toll); Collegiality in Changing Times (Martha Friedman); Curricular Decision Making (Lawrence K. Pettit); Curriculum Development by Evolution (Alice F. Emerson); Institutional Autonomy and Curricula (Willard L. Boyd); In Support of a Social Ideal (C. Arthur Sandeen); American Federalism and Autonomy (Steven Muller); Students and the Admissions Decision (Alfred L. Moye); Federal Support for Research (Linda S. Wilson); Factors in Research Funding (Frank Press); Science and Government (Cornelius J. Pings); Federal Involvement in Spending (Robert M. Rosenzweig); State Support for Higher Education (James M. Furman); The President Speaks for the University (Jose A. Cabranes); An Uneasy Alliance? (Retha Clark King); Higher Education: Its Own Champion (Stephen Joel Trachtenberg.); The Black Experience (Herman B. Smith, Jr.); The Indian Experience (Marian M. Hersud); and Higher Education's Social Role (Charles Frankel). It is suggested that the growing interaction between government and higher education will warrant a skillful blending of higher education's autonomy and government's role in representing the will of the people. A bibliography is provided. (Lc)
Effects of abundance, diversity, and health of native pollinators in urban forest fragments by David Pierpont Gardner( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bees are essential for crop pollination services; however, the ecosystem services they provide by pollinating native plants are crucial for maintaining biodiversity in natural systems. This study analyzed bee community changes within, on the edge, and outside of forest fragments. Phenological variation over two seasons and modeling to predict bee abundance associated with forest characteristics was performed. Finally the genetic diversity of two species of Bombus was analyzed. Bowl traps and aerial sweep netting in and near forest patches were used to sample bee communities in northern Delaware between March and August, 2013 and 2014. Bee phenology stayed consistent between field seasons, but fewer bees were collected in 2014 compared to 2013. Abundance modeling (R: unmarked) predicted that bee abundance was negatively impacted primarily by agriculture surrounding the forest patch. Analyses using microsatellites revealed that B. impatiens lacked overt population genetic structure while B. bimaculatus showed two genetically distinct populations. Pesticide analysis revealed 17 pesticides observed on adult bees from seven urban and suburban forest patches. Further studies investigating natural bee fluctuations in response to multiple field seasons, floral diversity, and chronic pesticide exposure are crucial in order to assess native pollinator health

Secretary of Education T.H. Bell created the National Commission on Excellence in Education on August 26, 1981, directing it to examine the quality of education in the United States and to make a report to the Nation and to him within 18 months of its first meeting. In accordance with the Secretary's instructions, this report contains practical recommendations for educational improvement and fulfills the Commission's responsibilities under the terms of its charter. The Commission was created as a result of the Secretary's concern about "the widespread public perception that something is seriously remiss in our educational system." Soliciting the "support of all who care about our future," the Secretary noted that he was establishing the Commission based on his "responsibility to provide leadership, constructive criticism, and effective assistance to schools and universities."--Publisher description

A nation at risk the imperative for educational reform : an open letter to the American people ; a report to the nation and the secretary of education by David Pierpont Gardner( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report: (1) investigates the declining state of the educational system in America, as measured by high school student performance in the United States and other countries; (2) identifies specific problem areas; and (3) offers multiple recommendations for improvement. The five major recommendations arrived at appear, respectively, under the headings: content, standards and expectations, time, teaching, leadership and fiscal support. Recommendations pertaining to content include the strengthening of high school graduation requirements by establishing minimum requirements for each student of: (a) 4 years of English; (b) 3 years of mathematics; (c) 3 years of science; (d) 3 years of social studies; and (e) one-half year of computer science. With regard to standards and expectations, schools, colleges, and universities are encouraged to adopt more rigorous and measurable standards and higher expectations for academic performance and student conduct. Four-year colleges and universities, in particular, are advised to raise their admission requirements. In order to improve time usage, the report advises that more time should be devoted to students learning the "New Basics," which may, in turn, require a longer school day, or a lengthened school year. Seven ways to improve teacher preparation and to make teaching a more rewarding and respected profession are listed. Six implementation guidelines are suggested for improving educational leadership and fiscal support. Appendices contain: (a) charter of the National Commission on Excellence in Education; (b) schedule of the Commission's public events; (c) list of commissioned papers; (d) list of individuals who testified at Commission hearings; (e) list of other presentations to the Commission; and (f) notable programs.
