Why We Have College

Louis Menand has written this useful analysis of the current state of higher education in the United States (in broad strokes).  The article includes a brief history of higher education as well as a discussion of two recent books on the subject.  He ends by raising the question of why in the liberal arts we faculty ask students to read the books we do, a question we should continually re-examine and for which we must have good answers.
