The perspective of Thiel in this April 10 TechCrunch article is pure genius! One really must question the value of spending massive amounts of money on higher education when we have reached unemployment levels rivaled only by the Great Depression but have the most educated population in history. Besides mountains of debt, what has all that education provided so many Americans who are out of work? To top it all off, tuition and materials (books) continue to increase in cost. Thiel is definitely right on the money here!
