You Can’t Stop Renu Khator :: Texas Monthly

Khator is on point.  What's most dangerous is the rhetoric that a college degree is not worth the cost.  You can read the whole article here:

You Can’t Stop Renu Khator :: Texas Monthly

JS: I just read about a study in Time magazine that found that 80 percent of U.S. adults say that a college education is not worth the cost. Does that worry you?

RK: What worries me is that rhetoric. Eighty percent of people in that survey may have said that a college degree isn’t worth it, but tell me if you can find even 10 percent of parents telling their children that college is not for them. For people to think they can somehow succeed and do well without a certain amount of competency, whether it comes from a college degree or from some certification—I think we are misleading a whole generation.
