Today’s WSJ reported on the continued dumbing down of America, at least as shown by SAT scores.
Education in America today elicits mixed feelings from me but mostly I’m not impressed.
First I'm very much an intellectual. Twenty years ago, I would have impressed on any kid that college is a must. However, in today's world, high school kids face two issues – 1. Outsourcing, and 2. Expensive college educations that can leave them burdened with debt.
Thus, I find myself changing my view on college – and believe me it’s a shock.
