The reimagination of higher education in 21st Century America

Higher education must change to fit this new global economy. Moreover, since higher education is huge business in America more students are walking away with higher debt. Is a college education worth its price anymore? The real problem with higher education is with a failure of imagination of the creative possibilities for secondary education – and post-secondary educational options that are alternative to traditional college/university education. The failure of secondary education to be as meaningful as it could be, apart from its socialization effects, is the true great dilemma in preparing future generations for creative and productive life by varied measures. For my parents’ generation, education for them was to get a good education and get a good job. For this current generation, a good education will mostly likely lead them to high debt and employment in retail and/or at fast food restaurants.
