How Low Can Higher Education Go? by John Ellis from “Minding the Campus.” Highly recommended. Just a taste:
One study after another has found that (recent college graduates) write badly, can’t reason, can’t read any reasonably complex material, have alarming gaps in their knowledge of the history and institutions of the society in which they live, and are in general poorly prepared for the workplace.
RECENT. COLLEGE. GRADUATES. The ones who DIDN’T drop out.

RTWT, where you will find this: “The goal of schooling is not considered to be instructional, let alone intellectual, but political.” And weep.
