James E. Miller: Higher Learning At An All-Time Low
James E. Miller writes:
Additionally, young adults shouldn’t be given something that is supposed to cultivate personal responsibility—it sends the wrong message. Things are valued more when work is put into them.
At a more general level, American universities have become far too lax regarding admissions. Many of the students I attended university with were spoiled, listless, and just going through the motions to graduate in between keggers. They weren’t challenging themselves to think more broadly about the world. For many it was a struggle to make it to class Friday morning after getting sloshed. Should the government really be picking up the tab for what amounts to a four-year Oktoberfest?
