Texas Week with Rick Casey: video available

Alamo Colleges is about to replace a humanities course with a learning framework focusing on leadership strategies, including those outlined in Stephen R. Covey’s book, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.” The presidents of all five colleges in the system oppose the change, but the chancellor says it is part of a broader effort to align students’ education with workforce needs.

SAC AAUP president Celita DeArmond and NVC humanities professor Craig Coroneos sat down with Rick Casey to discuss EDUC 1300:

  1. It’s laughable that EDUC1300 is to be based on a book that had its heydey in the 1980s. You can cover the entire contents in a one day training class for employees, and that’s what we did back then. The book contains some good ideas, but none of them are cutting-edge and it certainly is not suitable as the text or core for an entire college course. Who is getting the kick back for adopting it?

What do you think?
