About "Higher Education"
With the need to fill labor and professional positions (unemployment is at an all-time low), some are questioning the value of higher education. The Wall Street Journal reported last week that employers “are abandoning preferences for college degrees and specific skill sets” to try to fill positions. Tucker Carlson has been running a series called “Is College Worth It?” that analyzes the economic, social and personal returns of a college degree. And a George Mason professor made headlines with his paper, “The Case Against Education.”
Yet, how should professionals be educated? Are there alternatives to higher education? What setbacks does a society suffer if higher education is devalued? Parli debaters get to figure these questions out this week.
This week’s topics of debate include higher education, presidential authority of classified information, the federal government’s unconstitutional authority in the financing market, and more!
