Please read Gerry's 2nd comment in previous post

I'd just like to call attention to Gerry Barnett's comment in the preceding post on language study (I mean the sixth comment overall, and his second comment for that particular post -- though all of Gerry's comments are always well worth reading!). Gerry is making the important point that if UCOP / UC campuses are going to start lowering undergraduate requirements in order to speed them through to graduation, then serious questions can be raised about the content of that education. Gerry points to the WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) reaccreditation review of UCLA that is currently taking place. Most important perhaps for concerned faculty is the "Educational Effectiveness Review"; the site visit for UCLA will be Feb. 24-26, 2010. It would behoove UCLA faculty to organize some kind of response to the reviewing committee that brings attention to the possible lowering of undergraduate educational quality.
