Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Daniel asks: Are there any colleges in California that are totally private in the sense of not receiving money from the government?
My reply: Hillsdale College (see here) has an excellent reputation for academics as well as for the value it places on critical thinking. I wasn’t able to ascertain whether the institution itself accepts no government money but students may, in the form of tuition aid.
Another option is to self-educate, academically as well as practically. One has access to an unprecedented amount of material – and instruction – via the Internet. It is possible to become extremely well-read/educated without the formal education. And a degree is less and less necessary these days in more and more professions, excluding medicine and law. One can be a Hell of an engineer – and actually engineer things – without having a $100,000 piece of paper that says you’re an engineer. Und so weiter, especially as regards the so-called “liberal” arts, such as journalism for instance.
If you can write – and think – you don’t need a degree to do either or be successful at either.
Not that I am badmouthing traditional colleges – especially not Hillsdale. I am merely pointing out options and hoping you’ll consider them!
