Changing the way teens think
William West | Feb 3 2012 | comment  
Teenagers are at odds with the real world because they spend too much time being schooled in abstract knowledge and very little time getting involved in the everyday realities, says an American psychologist.

Alternatives to college education
Carolyn Moynihan | May 18 2010 | comment  
Here is a question that interests me a lot: Are we pushing too many high school graduates into university/college education? Recently on Mercatornet Thomas C Reeves suggested that we are. The New York Times last week discussed the same question, and the Wall Street Journal implied it with an opinion piece on graduate unemployment. Is it just because of the economic downturn, or is there a long-term issue to address?

If there is one thing the financial crisis has taught us it is the need society has for people who take a (well-founded) pride in their work.
