The Value of College

So Jon Steinberg, the president of Buzzfeed, who has 3- and 4-year-old kids, says he will discourage them from going to college (he graduated from Princeton and Columbia).  I wish that I could remember 13 years from now to see if he still holds that view.  It would be nice for him (and his kids) if they are actually mature and responsible enough to go straight from high school to “internships,” whatever he means by that.  I wonder what kind of internships Buzzfeed is offering these days to high school graduates with no plan to go to college??

This whole article is really worthwhile.
