Overview

Did you hate one particular class in school? Chances are everybody told you it was important in spite of the fact that you didn't enjoy it. But what if they were wrong? What if education wasn't actually as good for individuals and society as we all assume?

We all know that some classes can be boring. Moreover, in countries like the US, going to college often means draining your bank account - and even getting into a lot of debt. Setting all of this aside, there are some serious drawbacks to the way we do schooling that it's time to uncover and fix.

In Bryan Caplan's The Case against Education: Why the Education System Is a Waste of Time and Money, you'll find out how irrelevant to real-life the knowledge we get from school can be and what we can do to remedy it.

"Education definitely can be good for the soul. But that hardly shows actually existing education achieves this noble end."
