Reading _Lower Ed_: the plan
Here’s Bryan Alexander’s plan for the Lower Ed book club reading sessions, making cyber landfall starting Monday May 8 with the Introduction.
On to our next book club reading! The discussion and voting pointed to Tressie McMillan Cottom‘s Lower Ed: The Troubling Rise of For-Profit Colleges in the New Economy. (publisher; Amazon). In this post I’ll outline a proposed reading schedule.
Each chapter is under thirty pages, so if we assign ourselves one per seek, we get:
May 8 – Introduction: The Education Gospel
May 15 – Chapter 1. The Real.
May 22 – Chapter 2. The Beauty College and the Technical College.
May 29 – Chapter 3. Jesus Is My Backup Plan.
June 5 – Chapter 4. When Higher Education Makes Cents.
June 12 – Chapter 5. Where Credit Is Due.
June 19 – Chapter 6. Credentials, Jobs, and the New Economy.
June 26 – Epilogue and Methodological Notes
