“The Good, the Bad, and the Ivory Tower: American Higher Education and its Discontents”
6:30-8:30 p.m. at Schlafly Bottleworks
Many people have suggested that higher education in America is a troublesome bubble. Student debt is unsustainable and most students who enter college never graduate. Why has it become so necessary for people to attend these institutions of higher learning? What is at stake for those who choose to go to college and for those who don’t attend? Historically, almost no one attended college, but it has recently become an established norm. How does our view on these issues speak to our view of human nature and society? How can we live together as we wrestle with these questions? While some perhaps overvalue education, there are others who seem almost against it, viewing it as a means of indoctrination. All this and more as we discuss “The Good, the Bad, and the Ivory Tower: American Higher Education and its Discontents.” Come have a brew, share your view, and lend an ear to others'.
