Redefining 'Open Access'

George B. Vaughan, Tidsskriftet for Universiteternes Efter- og Videreuddannelse, Dec 01, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This article looks at the increasingly difficult task of providing a community college education for everyone, and solves that problem with a little semantic subterfuge, redefining the meaning of 'open access': "To be true to their mission, community colleges must serve all segments, but not all members, of society." Nobody, of course, will be fooled by this, and calling the resulting system 'open access' is the basest sort of intellectual dishonesty.
