The Right take on higher education.

Re: Say Wha?


Good point, Robert. There are lots of feeble defenses for maintaining our high-cost, low-value higher-education system but that’s one of the silliest. Young people who don’t go to college also learn “life lessons.” They probably learn them faster than do those who spend four or five or six years in college in a heavily subsidized existence where sports and parties are often more important than anything else.

College has an enormous opportunity cost.
