Parenting and College

| | Comments (1)

OpinionJournal has two good reads this morning.

1. InstaPundit Glenn Reynolds' "The Parent Trap" is a look at how safety nazis and a decline in the social prestige of parenthood have combined to create a serious disincentive for adults to multiply.

2. Vincent J. Cannuto reviews "Excellence Without a Soul" by Harry Lewis, which is a according to Cannuto, a book in "defense of the idea that universities should be about something."

Reynolds speaks more to the symptoms than the root disease (which IMNSHO is bad philosophy), but he's pretty much right, I think. The same might also be said of Cannato, and by extension the book he is reviewing.
