A good argument is made in this Inside Higher Education piece that pushing more non-traditional college goers into pursuing college is a mistake -- college doesn’t lead to a life in the fancy burbs. But the writer totters on some flimsy logic. Sure, many new jobs don’t require a four-year degree, but most do require some level of post high school study. College, in some form, has become the new high school. And far too many men are missing that message.
