"Competitive Advantage: Stratification, privatization, and vocationalization of higher education"

YIR- see: Competitive Advantage: Stratification, privatization, and vocationalization of higher education
Sheila Slaughter, professor of higher education at the University of Georgia, delivers the 31st Annual Howard R. Bowen Lecture for Claremont Graduate University's School of Educational Studies.
Neo-liberalism and fiscal constraints are increasing the competition for prestige and funding within higher education. The intense focus on STEM and professional fields is creating disparities between these fields and the liberal arts. With these issues in mind, Slaughter discusses the complex processes influencing higher education and examines organizational and social countertrends contesting these changes.

Her talk begins at the 14:25 mark
