source quote
previous previous Higher Education next next
Education recently passed from the control of the clergy to that of lawyers and businessmen. Eventually it must be given over to the philosophers and the scientists. Teachers must be free beings, real leaders, to the end that philosophy, the search for wisdom, may become the chief educational pursuit (71:7.4).      In the earlier years of colleges and universities, the governing boards were largely composed of clergymen.... During the past few decades, the government of higher education has fallen into new hands—those of lawyers and men of business....
     It is most astonishing that it should ever have occurred to anyone that the policies of higher education could properly be directed by men of business....
     Business men are enterprisers in the status quo. They are peculiarly sensitive to anything that disturbs the processes whereby they carry on their operations. Hence they have brought an increasing pressure to bear to keep colleges and universities "safe," with the result that the spirit of independent research in all matters affecting economic and political life has been more or less openly discouraged.... It is something of [the] spirit of the philosopher that is needed in our education.... Education of the future will seek for the wisdom that embraces all the manifold details of life in a comprehensive grasp of what life is for.
     —H. A. Overstreet (1933)
