The Right take on higher education.

The Unbounded University


Higher education is about to change; the existing institution, with its high costs, low standards, and extreme politicization, is becoming increasingly hard to justify. The real question is whether the reform will come in gradual increments or in a tidal wave of radical change.

On today’s Clarion Call, George Leef interviews one of the leading proponents of radical reform, Dale Stephens, the founder of “Uncollege.” Stephens has a new book out called “Hacking Your Education,” in which he offers advice on how to gain the knowledge you need or want without spending four or more years on campus and without the five- or six-figure price tag.
