Bryan Caplan joins The Remnant to discuss his latest book, The Case Against Education.
Some interesting thought about education in America. There are some simple take aways from this, but there’s also some very complex interactions that may not be quite as easy to tease solutions out of the data. Bookmarking some of Bryan Caplan’s work to read in the future.
It wasn’t mentioned in the episode, but this reminds me of one of the other major problems in American education compared with other countries. In many countries in the early high school years children make a choice to train for a trade versus to continue education to go to college.
