Is College Worth It? (Hardcover)
By Dr. William J. Bennett & David Wilezol
Publication Date: April 30, 2013
This book explores the answer to a critical question: Should we keep sending our kids to college?
The American system of higher education comprises some of the best universities, teachers and students the world has ever seen. Millions of students around the globe want nothing more in life than to attend an American university. However, many of America’s colleges and universities today have serious academic, institutional and other performance problems and are quickly approaching a crisis point, if they're not there already. Despite some excellent colleges with quality programs, too many institutions of higher education are wildly expensive. Students often graduate having learned little, or they don’t graduate at all. They are indoctrinated with liberal politics and subjected to all types of nonacademic distractions. For these reasons, many students would be better served exploring other educational alternatives.
In "Is College Worth It?," William J. Bennett and David Wilezol assess the problems of American higher education at various levels, from runaway costs to inferior academics to poor graduation rates to political indoctrination, and propose serious reforms and alternative methods for improving higher education so that it better serves our students.
