Congressman argues Americans should embrace traditional education



Congressman Tim Walberg (R-MI) tells Campus Reform that higher education has lost its way, and that the free market is our nation’s best hope to get it back on track.
Walberg says that “traditional” education is not necessarily the four-year bachelor's programs that most Americans might thing of today. Historically, education has been far more practical.
“Tradition,” he says, “goes back to the fact that we had apprenticeships we had people who mentored people in a trade, something that made a diff in their lives for the future and carried on.”
