The Ivy League College bubble bust

Another "High-priced College Isn't Worth It" story. It's gets more believable to me the closer my kids get to College-age.

UPDATE 8/21/09: Via Powerline, a link to What Will they Learn? a guide that looks at the required core courses at particular colleges, which is the only way to ensure that college students actually learned the core "need to know" things in science, math, literature, history, etc. Interestingly, their "A list" of the best Colleges in terms of requiring basic core courses includes Baylor, UT Austin, and Texas A&M. Harvard? Rated D. Rice University, Johns Hopkins University, Brown University, and Smith College are rated F.
