Bilge. Check out the resumes of half the CEOs of the largest American corporations and you'll find they are English majors. You don't become a leader by taking Finance classes.

The value of a liberal education simply can't be measured in dollars. It's absurd to try.

Liberal education produces critical thinking, balanced perspectives, a sense of history, and above all the understanding that most of what is valuable in life has nothing whatever to do with one's wallet.

This artilce has been my argument for the last 30 years and it has taken the government this long to establish what common sense could prove back then. College students and parents and grandparents are stuck with paying their children debts and school loans. The degrees may be good on paperwork but the fact is there are no jobs for intellectual property or $100K individual income to earn a million dollars in a life time.

Now with common core posing a dangerous threat to an eduction with its propaganda and censored and twisted lies its going to take another 30+ years to figure it out that common core wasn't so good after all. It gave schools billions of dollars to blackmail and control education but in the process our country has regressed to the economic conditions of the 1920's.

And its getting worse every time we allow more foreign nationals to think of us as their spoils of war victory by occupation but don't have the same culture that created and sustained this republic for 238 years.

So we become an extension of Tijuana and a culture of people so poor poverty is a rich mans way of life.
