Education at a Crossroads

Two interesting items caught my eye recently with regard to education-- or perhaps, the lack of it. With the Senate confirming Betsy DeVos today, this Thomas Sowell article gives a rundown about why this was important.

When it comes to so-called higher education, this article from the Unz Review covers the cesspool of revoluntionary formation that is the modern American university.

Count me as slightly disappointed in the Trump administration for not pushing more chips to the center of the table when confronted with "concerns" over Mrs. DeVos's qualifications. I'd have much rather seen the administration answer with a plan to abolish the Department of Education and defend its pick with something along the lines of "Anyone and everyone is qualified to turn off the lights."
