UA and core curriculum

Posted By on Thu, May 20, 2010 at 9:32 AM

A national group is continuing its campaign to persuade the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees, which meets tomorrow, to resist a proposal from the Fayetteville campus to ease core curriculum, or general education requirements for the undergraduate college.

“In the interest of excellence and high standards, it is imperative that UA abandon this well-intentioned, yet profoundly misguided effort. While improving graduation rates and ensuring seamless [two-year college] transfers are important objectives, dumbing down the entire curriculum is no way to achieve them,” says the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, a nonprofit with backing from wealthy right-wingers.
