Questioning College

Charles Murray has an extremely important and provocative article in today's Wall Street Journal. Here's the title: "For Most People, College Is a Waste of Time".

He's right. Most students in our public universities are simply marking time and the costs of education are completely unjustified. The dropout rate, especially among young males, reflects these facts.

He advocates a system of certification that will test specific skills rather than the B. A. system currently in place. It's certainly something to think about.
