5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone Should Read This Book!, June 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Higher Education Bubble (Encounter Broadside) (Paperback)
I have taught college for 40 years -- mostly part-time. I have worked at a decent private institution for the last 27 years and have been horrified at the lack of preparation of a significant number of students -- not all, but way too many. In my terms, half of our graduates are functionally illiterate. Combine this with escalating tuition, and you get a national crisis -- a bubble, if you will.

Mr. Reynolds' work in this area, which I have accessed most often as a daily visitor to his excellent "Instapundit" website, has defined and elevated this issue so that it is now entering the mainstream.

Every teacher and administrator, at every level of education, should read this book. Every parent of a school age child, and every high school or college student, should also read it. Something that can't go on won't. Change is coming. If you want to understand the problems of contemporary higher education and be part of the national discussion and solution, you've got to read this clear and concise work.
