Thoughtful column on higher education

Misguided by Higher Education is a great column about higher education.  It has a number of interesting points. 

For example the author proposes that by encouraing so many to attend columns our country has suffered in lost opportunities.  He lists many successful high tech companies which were started by drop outs and asks if the students might have been more willing to take risks and start up a new business if they were not saddled by mountains of debt.

The column is a bit long, but well worth reading.
