Summary
"Teach Them to Challenge Authority gets to the heart of what education should really be about. Drawing on decades of experience, Gregory S. Prince Jr. moves seamlessly between his experience as President of Hampshire College and the broader picture made up of national and international issues. He demonstrates that the debate between "neutral" versus "engaged" universities could have radical consequences - not just for the world of education, but for society as a whole."--Jacket
