Over at the International Herald Tribune is an article titled "Why Go to College at All?" The writer is Ms Holly Epstein Ojalvo and the subject is the views of Mr Dale J. Stephens, 20, the founder of UnCollege, which urges students to “hack their education” by finding their own pathways to success. Mr. Stephens is a Thiel Fellow.
There is talk of an education bubble, just like there was a tulip bubble and a housing bubble.
An admission. While at the Theil website I found that my saying, "Never let school interfere with your education" may not be original with me. It seems Mark Twain lifted it from someone before even my parent came along.
