Charles Murray agrees with me on higher education

In today’s Wall Street Journal, Charles Murray has a column in which he contends that way too many young Americans are going to college.  For those kids, the educational benefits are very slight and the degree does nothing except to get them past the “BA holders only” requirements that many employers have established as screening devices.

Murray is optimistic that the business world will come up with better ways of screening potential employees than just looking at paper education credentials.
