Older Students Are Better Students

by George Leef

It has been said that youth is wasted on the young, and that may also apply to education. So argues Professor Jeffrey Anderson in a Pope Center piece, suggesting that colleges shouldn’t accept students under the age of 25.

Of course, he doesn’t really think we should prevent younger people from pursuing college-level education, but he’s making the point that many students lack the maturity right out of high school to derive much benefit from what college has to offer academically.
