HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE: Skin In The Game: Texas technical colleges want to link state funding and employment outcomes. I’ll bet this is sending a shiver down the spines of humanities faculty everywhere.

UPDATE: By the way, lest anyone think I’m dissing the humanities in principle, I’m not. I spoke just today with a friend from law school, though, who despairs of finding people who can write clearly, even with fancy degrees. If humanities programs — or, for that matter, high schools — actually taught writing and critical thinking effectively, it would be great. Too many of them don’t.
