Publisher's Summary

Explore the answer to a critical question: Should we keep sending our kids to college? The American system of higher education comprises some of the best universities, teachers, and students the world has ever seen. Millions of students around the globe want nothing more in their life than to attend an American university.

However, many of America’s colleges and universities today have serious academic, institutional, and other performance problems, and it is quickly approaching a crisis point, if it’s not there already. Despite some excellent colleges and quality programs at many colleges, too much of higher education is wildly expensive. Students often graduate having learned little, or don’t graduate at all.

They are indoctrinated with liberal politics and subjected to all types of non-academic distractions. For these reasons, many students would be better served exploring other educational alternatives.

In Is College Worth It?, William J. Bennett and David Wilezol assess the problems of American higher education at various levels, from runaway costs to inferior academics to poor graduation rates to political indoctrination, and propose serious reforms and alternative methods for improving higher education so that it better serves our students.

    "Interesting as an high school educator"
    Where does Is College Worth It? rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Interesting as an educator to understand how the cost-benefit analysis of college education is become increasingly important. The common discourse of "university for all" is being questioned as salaries and unemployment levels should have parents, students and educators looking for more varied roads towards economic and family growth.
