Higher Ed, Lower Benefits

This interesting editorial points out what’s seriously wrong with our nation’s approach to higher education. Of course, one of our local politicos has proclaimed that “every child deserves a college education”. That’s part of the problem – the public has been seduced into believing that a bachelor’s degree is the ticket to a good life. It can help, but it can also be a terrible and costly error. Not everyone benefits from a college education. For that matter, I’m not so sure that secondary education benefits everyone. Where did these ideas come from?
