If it’s Friday, it must be Wildavsky/WSJ day…

Here’s a good book review by the winner of the Eduwonk fish porn guessing contest. Ben Wildavsky takes on the logic (not sure logic is quite the appropriate word) of Charles Murray in his new book arguing that higher education should be reserved for the elite. Here’s Murray explaining himself on the WSJ’s op-ed pages. As Wildavsky points out, there’s no reason for Gates and Lumina and other higher education foundations dedicated to broadening the base of America’s college-going population to rethink their strategies.
