Is college a waste? Econ professor says yes

By Around the Web

(THE COLLEGE FIX) — A new book by Bryan Caplan, an economics professor at George Mason University, aims to sound the alarm on what he calls a broken education system. It’s aptly titled: “The Case against Education: Why the Education System Is a Waste of Time and Money.”

“I feel like I need to be a whistleblower, and let the taxpayers know that their money is not delivering what they imagine it’s delivering,” Caplan, an educator of 20 years, said in a recent interview on Bookmonger, a podcast hosted by journalist John J. Miller.

Caplan’s main claim is that the education system rewards the individual, but not necessarily at a benefit to society.
