"What are universities for anyway?" Peter Hitchens

Award-winning British columist and author Peter Hitchens questions the value of his three years at the University of York where he majored in Politics.

He states: "We seem to accept without question that it is a good thing that the young should go through this dubious experience. Worse, employers seem to have fallen completely for the idea that a university degree is essential – when it is often a handicap."

In Europe far more of the expense of college and university is bourne by the government than in the US.

It is time to send fewer kids to college, reduce the expense of these institutions and get far more practical about the education they provide.
