As a result of ongoing academic changes seen over the last decade, the students of today are obtaining a poorer understanding of material, which means that they are less prepared for jobs in the workplace and employers are reluctant to hire them when they graduate.  Less courses are being offered in various subject areas, less details are being presented in those courses, the number of assignments is reducing, the assignments have become more brief and easier to do, less reading is required, less reference material is being given, and tests are becoming more basic.

This book presents observations about the declining quality of content delivered in courses at universities and colleges, possible reasons for these changes and their impact on the quality of classroom instruction, as well as some recommended solutions that are needed.  Follow along as the issues are presented and perhaps, together, we can make positive changes now that will protect the future and value of education.

My technology book, “E-Commerce Concepts”, discussed strategies to use when a business wanted to take advantage of e-commerce to increase their sales and international exposure.  Another book, “MBA Strategic Analysis”, discussed methods to use to assess business strengths so that opportunities for growth can be more effectively implemented.  A final book, “Computerized Financial Systems”, reviewed database designs and processes that are needed for implementing functional financial systems.
