Reviews - What do customers think about The College Racket?

Although this book was written primarily for students and their parents, taxpayers in general should also gain from reading and absorbing the real message presented by Simon. His message is simply this: A college education should not only provide the student with programs and courses that truly give the student the necessary knowledge and training to become a self-sustaining and useful citizen but also that the taxpayers' dollars are spent as efficiently as possible.

Simon covers many of the positive aspects of programs at various colleges but he deals mainly with the deficiences and inefficiences of the large number of offerings across the country. He goes into great detail with documented information on those two issues and views poor preparation at the high school level as just part of the problem.

Anyone who is genuinely interested in the subject of improving the educational system in this country can surely benefit from the well over 200 pages of fact-filled information and views put forth by the author. Not everyone will agree with him but his book does bring into focus that some serious changes must be made if we are to continue to be a world leader in higher education
