Murray On Education

Charles Murray has a critique of the “everybody must get a bachelor’s degree” mindset which is prominent in American life.

I do agree with the idea that government should get out of the student loan business (and, unfortunately, they’re doing the exact opposite.  Because student loans are totally related to health care and all), and this would dry up some of the demand from people who go to party for four years.

One thought on “Murray On Education

  1. The problem is, it makes sense for any given individual to pursue a degree. High school diplomas are hardly worth the paper they’re printed on.

    We’d also have to look at the effects of “partial degrees”; i.e. do you have to finish college to gain some earnings potential above and beyond the high school graduate?
