Ivory Tower

This 2014 documentary by Andrew Rossi examines the factors threatening to bring down America’s once highly envied higher education system. One commentator claims that the decline of American higher education started in the 1970s when students had the rug pulled from under them by the shift in policy ‘from seeing education as a public good to seeing it exclusively as a private good’. The film raises worrying questions about where Australian higher education may be headed, and reinforces why there is such strong public and political opposition to the Americanisation of our once world class public higher education system. At McCrossin’s Mill, 24-28 Salisbury St, Uralla. Entry free, donations welcome.
