Gaff provides a new analysis of general education, focusing on the curriculum reform movement. His book has three basic aims: a contemporary analysis of the public debate and curriculum reforms; an assessment of some of the early results of curriculum changes; and a future agenda that includes shifting organizational priorities and creating structures to better support undergraduate general education. Gaff's agenda mainly calls for the training of a new generation of faculty in the values associated with liberal and general education; the implementation of current general education programs; and the integration of general education with academic majors. The agenda is strengthened by Gaff's study of some 300 colleges and universities that are reforming their general education curricula. Gaff also draws on popular critics, such as Allan Bloom, William Bennett, and E.D. Hirsch. ISBN 1-55542-392-2: $29.95
