ACTA on Core Curriculum

ACTA has a report available online on their recommendations for a core curriculum. It’s actually from 2003, but I guess it has been made available online for the first time. If ACTA wants to figure out what was wrong with its more recent report “How Many Ward Churchills?”, this is a good place to start, because it’s a pretty decent report. It’s much more careful, it actually convenes a discussion, it sets out to persuade readers, including faculty, of the soundness of its arguments. The report is open to many different institutional styles of addressing the issue of a core curriculum. The report still makes some generalizations that I disagree with in some respect or another, but it’s a perfectly fine initial prompt for a general discussion.
