This post from American Interest discusses and article in the Boston Globe about classes offered at local colleges. The post is entitled “How to Ruin Your Life.” It is a microcosm of what is wrong with many colleges today. The courses that are offered serve no purpose in the real world. You may say that a lot of courses required serve no purpose. I would strongly disagree if they are courses that give you a good base of knowledge from which to conduct business and interact with others in your adult life. These courses do neither.
