    EPISODE 20 - Post-secondary Success Strategies

    Guys -- love the new podcast!! However, I think that episode 20's answers were severely misguided. Yes, college is not for everyone and it's an especially expensive way to find oneself if you have not a clue as to what you want to do. Yet, I think that the recent David Brooks column in the New York Times (http://nyti.ms/1G9OhqP) and John Cassidy's article in the New York (http://nyr.kr/1ieNdai) did a much better job of capturing the trade-offs of going or not going to college than either of you did during the podcast. While James may not think that his programming degrees at Cornell did him much good, I think that he may have gotten more out of it than he thinks. As a college professor for the past 16 years, I have plenty of examples of student for whom college was a game changing experience, and some for whom it was not. I hope that you will both be supportive of your children's choices going forward, whether you pay for them or not. Keep up the good work but stick to topics that you can put a more balanced perspective forward. Thanks!
