QUOTE OF THE DAY: On Education

"Credentialing, not education, has become the primary business
of North American universities. … One wonders at the docility
of the students who evidently must be satisfied enough
with the credentials to be uncaring about the lack of education."

- Jane Jacobs, author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities

  1. Very true.
    I wonder if there is a single university in the US that has not succumbed to the "PC" virus.
    I don't think there is.
