Carter on The Case Against Education

Summary:
I’m very pleased to have made famed author Stephen L. Carter‘s list of best non-fiction books, and even more pleased with the write-up: I’m not sure he’s right, especially about education being almost entirely for the purpose of signaling, but goodness does he make a strong case. Agree with him or not, you’ll never look at the schools and colleges in quite the same way. It’s not too late to buy the book, of course. P.S. My next book (a non-fiction graphic novel co-authored with Zach Weinersmith), now titled Open Borders: The Science and Ethics of Immigration, will be published by First Second in Fall of 2019, hopefully before the election drowns out serious intellectual discussion for a year.
