"I don't know how all this talk about truth, goodness, and beauty are going to get a kid into college."
I heard somewhere that a board member of a Christian classical school uttered these words. I chooose to regard them as apocryphal and thus to set them up as a dummy to respond to.
Here's my first response:
30% of adults in the US have a college education, while only 20% of our jobs require one. College is an increasingly good way to collect debt and prepare for unemployment.
