The failures of U.S. colleges

Per the blog Inside Higher Ed:

"If the purpose of a college education is for students to learn, academe is failing, according toAcademically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses, a book being released today by University of Chicago Press."

See the rest of the article here.

We certainly expect more from the students at my high school (and at our middle school) than it seems is expected at some U.S. colleges.
