Peter Stearns’ critique of Jay Selingo’s view of Higher Ed

The context is Selingo’s book, College Unbound. Stearns critique, which I agree with, is here.

More to the point, my sense is that the book is something of a polemic. And sad to say, that may be the way to gain notoriety these days. Which is not to say that there are many serious points in the book worthy of discussion–there are.
