Joe Carver and Laura Harrison write article about classism in higher education
Joe Carver, advising coordinator for eLearning OHIO, and Laura Harrison, assistant professor in the Department of Counseling and Higher Education in the Patton College of Education, have collaborated on an article that was published in the research journal Equity & Excellence in Education. The article, titled “Critical Thinking Versus Vocationalism: A Matter of Class?,” explores how classist attitudes are shaping education.
