I was just thinking about this while walking the other day. Just what, exactly, is college for, anyway?
I deal with many high schoolers who go on to college and maintain contact with some of them over the years. Of course, I have two children who went through the college experience, as did I (back, as I always say, when dinosaurs roamed the earth). In thinking about my question, I wondered if the true, idealistic purpose of "higher education" has ever completely realized among the majority of the millions who have passed through the ivy gates.
