Maybe Republicans read the article in The Atlantic, or even the book, by Bryan Caplan, which I have just quoted. It makes a pretty good argument that higher education does not actually result in much education, but rather, is kind of a ticket, a signal, to employers about the kind of person you are. Then it would be perfectly rational to question its value.there are different types of higher education, a lot training can be learned in trade schools, which is still higher education
and if you read my posts, I've not said college is not necessary for everyone
the post you responded to was referring to many people who have scrambled in this thread to deflect and whatabout instead of addressing the study in the OP
so you're okay with people going to college? good.
in case you need to refresh your memory, this is the link from the OP and the discussion (that should be) at hand
Views of Higher Education Divided by Party
fwiw, the study concludes that the main reason Republicans are not fond of Higher Education is due to perceived politics and culture on campus (and higher costs, which I agree with), and that has been covered by several in this thread.
