Re-thinking College: It's Not for Everybody

"I'm not arguing against higher learning but for it -- and against the degree system that stands in its way," Jack Hough

Remember the board game LIFE? Mr. Hough's New York Post opinion piece makes his point with a comparison of two typical high school graduates. One goes to college, the enters the workforce and saves.

I've written about the college dilemma before, mostly from the perspective that all young women should not be expected to go to college. Jack Hough takes the argument a step further.
