She worries that the education system as we currently construct it is notproducing elites who possess the right kinds of knowledge to think about the needs of the least advantaged.Instead she argues that elites should be educated in order to provide ?responsiveness and effective serviceof the interests of people in all sectors of society? (Anderson, 596). Anderson goes onto explain the fourfeatures of responsiveness that need to be addressed in education. Identify those four features ofresponsiveness and explain why education in each of those would produce elites who are able to provide thekind of public service for which Anderson advocates.
