More on the Value of College

Harvard professor Louis Menand, in a recent article in the New Yorker, debates two views of higher education. Is college a sorting mechanism that allows society to identify the intellectually nimble, or is college a knowledge delivery system that enlightens and empowers our students?

Louis Menand is the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of English and American Literature and Language at Harvard University;  he has also taught at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, Princeton, Columbia, and the University of Virginia School of Law.
