Myth, Reality, and Reform: Higher Education Policy in Latin America
Castro, Claudio de Moura; Levy, Daniel C.
"Myth, Reality, and Reform: Higher Education Policy in Latin America" analyzes Latin American higher education in terms of four major functions: academic leadership, professional development, technological training and development, and general higher education. Overall, the authors make the case that Latin America's modernization and integration into the global economy and society depends on higher education. They propose to consolidate the strengths of higher education systems while fundamentally reforming their weaker features, and they make policy proposals on finance, governance and quality control.
