The Case Against Education: Why the Education System Is a Waste of Time and Money

Bryan Caplan says that everything you think you know about education is wrong in his new book, “The Case Against Education: Why the Education System Is a Waste of Time and Money.”

In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Caplan explains why he as a Ph.D. holder wanted to blow the whistle on today’s schooling, describes how he’d rebuild the education system from scratch, and offers advice to parents who just want to help their kids.

    Depends on your definition of waste. As a jobs program the public school system works well.
