Project #47438 - A College is a Waste of Time and Money ( Reading Article )

1)Read the Article.

2) Summarize each paragraph in one or two sentences. 

3) Answer these questions:

* Much of Bird's article focuses on the economic value ( or lack thereof) of a college education. Are there other reasons, beyond ( or in addition to) economics, why you or your classmates are attending college? To what extent does Bird consider or ignore these other reasons for attending college?

* In paragraphs 48-50 (highlited in yellow), Bird compares liberal arts education to relegion. Why does she make this comparsion? What do you think her attitude is toward the liberal arts? Is it similar to or different from yours?

 

*In paragraphs 5-6(highighted in blue ), Bird discusses the hard-sell advertising techniques of many academic institutions. Look into your own school's "advertising techniques" ( view books, pamphlets, information sent to homes and high schools, Web sites, etc.) How do these sources present the school to parents and potential students? Write an analysis of one of these sources.
