Higher Not Occupational Education — 4 Comments

  1. I applaud your commentary on higher education. My wife and I live a few blocks from Juniata College and have the chance to meet many students. The power of a liberal arts education is in full bloom and is demonstrating outstanding results for these bright, curious and hard-working students. Proud to be a Juniata alumnus. By the way, my friends from the class of 1979 all believe the investment they made in education was a great choice.

    • Thanks, Bob. Yes, liberal arts education is consistent with Epstein’s summary of research that generalists out perform specialists. A good answer to the question “What are you going to do with that major?” is think critically, solve problems and communicate effectively. Arnie
