Two academics concerned about higher education in the U.S. have made a list of 10 colleges that are worth the money.
Can You Get What You Pay For?
Recently, we here at MainStreet published an interview with Claudia Dreifus, co-author (with Andrew Hacker) of the controversial book Higher Education: How Colleges Are Wasting Our Money and Failing Our Kids— and What We Can Do About It. In the interview, Dreifus details the reason she believes investing in a college education is becoming a losing proposition for young Americans. In fact, Hacker and Dreifus even take big Ivy League schools like Harvard and Yale to task as examples of U.S. colleges that just aren’t worth the money. But the authors also point to some U.S. colleges offering college students an academic experience that is well worth the money. MainStreet asked the authors for a list of their top U.S. colleges. Here’s what they delivered. Photo Credit: bensonkua
