Another Success Who Says College Was a Waste


Rich Karlgaard, publisher of Forbes, writes, “My college actually took me away from logical thinking.” He laments that so many young American exhaust themselves trying to get into an elite college (and drain the family’s resources if they succeed), when they’d learn more and spend much less at a community college. (He earned his degree in political science at Stanford.) Karlgaard foresees fruitful collaboration between community colleges and online education. “This affordable alliance will be a fantastic blessing for late bloomers — and America.”
