Why Does Higher Education Lack Wisdom?

As mother of a 16 year old college student who complains about a system that isn’t challenging, I LOVE this post! My son’s chief complaint is that the system seems to be geared toward getting credentials and nothing more. He wants something of value and I continue to pray that he finds it. Common Core is setting standards for K-12 education to provide a more substantial educational experience. What will it take for American public colleges and universities to do likewise?
