Free Academic Questions Articles

Ashley Thorne

Our forthcoming issue of Academic Questions themed on Sustainability will be printed next month, but we’d like to whet your appetite with a preview. Our publisher Springer has provided free access to one article from the issue. The article, “Corroding the Curriculum: Sustainability v. Education,” by Austin Williams, shows how the pervasive influence of the sustainability agenda in UK and U.S. education has degraded academic standards. Williams writes: 

Through the prism of sustainability, educationalists can once again envisage changing the world, not by creating a knowledgeable, critically-engaged generation of enlightened subjects, but by an objectified generation taught to regurgitate pious claims to eco-salvation. 

NAS has pre-published on our website another article from this AQ issue, “The Roots of Sustainability,” by Glenn Ricketts.  

On the Road to Equal Rights,” a piece by Ward Connerly in our issue on the Future of Racial Preferences, is also free, as is the entire issue on Liberal Education and the Family. Enjoy!
