Another Liberal Dissents from the Idea that We Need More "Educational Attainment"

George Leef

New York University economics professor Edward N. Wolff is another liberal who doesn’t agree that the nation will benefit, either in rising productivity or greater equality (and inequality bothers him a lot) by pushing more students into college in hopes of increasing our level of “educational attainment.” His 2006 book Does Education Really Help? calls the conventional wisdom on that into question.

Another book that the advocates of increasing the “production” of college graduates have overlooked.
