I have another education related piece up over at New Geography. This one is called “Is College Worth It?” This was prompted by recent talk of a higher education bubble, Peter Thiel paying people to drop out of school, and a highly educated friend who told me he didn’t have a college fund for his kids on the assumption that at least some of them won’t be going to college. To find out the answer to the question, click through to NG.
