Dennis Prager Spoke at CU Boulder - 6 Save Money on College, don't send your kids.

I've heard Dennis Prager on the radio for 14 years and until last night, I've never heard him so forcefully suggest that you might be better off not sending your kids to college.

He used to say that college was not as important as most people make it out to be.

Last night he actually said that unless your child is going into the hard sciences, you would be better off giving your child $15,000 a year for four years and lettting them travel or do as they will with it.

His argument is that a liberal arts education is so foolish, that just living in the real world, is better than recovering from 4 years of disinformation and propaganda.

His famous quip is, "whenever I hear something particularly stupid, I know the person speaking must have gone to graduate school".
