In honor of all the college graduates who have walked across that stage in the past few weeks, I present a Mallard Fillmore running commentary on the state of higher education in America.
Lest you get the wrong idea, I’m hardly opposed to a college education. After all, I’ve been teaching at that level for the past 26 years. I am opposed, though, to any college education that is not college level, thereby offering no real education at all. Sadly, that is the status of so much of what passes for higher education today.
Think carefully before you spend all that money you will have to pay back for many years. Be sure you are receiving what you are paying for.
