Sure. Check out this article by an Economist titled “Twelve Inconvenient Truths About American Higher Education.

I do not agree with all of the opinions necessarily, but agree enough to conclude there is cause for concern. The evidence — data or statistics — presented of course speaks for itself.

The beauty of it all of course is regardless of all of the issues raised, the education system and breadth of employment opportunities in the USA support what arguably is the system most adaptable to quest for self awareness and becoming in the world. By adaptability I mean there are significant resources available for most things people desire to be, from the arts all the way to the sciences. Hopefully things can remain that way.

Its been a pleasure engaging with you on this topic.
