That said, today's issue has an op-ed on the high cost of college that proposes, as a solution:
"Why not reduce undergraduate education to three years, while tacking an extra year onto high school?"*Good God Almighty, as my father would have said.
Five years of public high school?
FIVE YEARS of Hunger Games in English and Core-Plus in math?
And here I was thinking everyone should skip senior year and go re-take algebra and English at their local community college instead.
(Is high school cheaper than community college? High school teachers here earn a great deal more than instructors in community colleges, but I don't know whether that's the case elsewhere.)
the founder, chairman, and CEO of Netflix has a really bad idea
Larry Summers has a really bad idea
David Brooks has a really bad idea

All is forgiven.
* That's the pull. Full passage: Why not adopt the Quebec model and reduce undergraduate education to three years, while tacking an extra year onto high school?
