Well-rounded students

Heather Wilson analyses how narrow the curricula of American students is getting on the Washington Post opinion article Our Superficial Scholars.
Our great universities seem to have redefined what it means to be an exceptional student. They are producing top students who have given very little thought to matters beyond their impressive grasp of an intense area of study.
Perhaps faculty members are themselves more narrowly specialized because of pressure to publish original work in ever more obscure journals.
Richard H. Hersh proposes A Well-Rounded Education for a Flat World at the Educational Leadership magazine. The draft of the project can be found at the Bringing Theory to Practice website.

The Association of American Colleges and Universities presents its own view of A well-rounded Education for a Flat World including Promoting and Protecting Mental Health as Flourishing.
