On Liberal Education

In In Defense of a Liberal Education, Fareed Zakaria writes that learning ‘how to write clearly, how to express yourself convincingly, and how to think analytically’ are the prime virtues of education. These are almost exactly what many of us at small liberal-arts colleges hope for our own students as well. Clearly, we’re onto something of timeless value. We had best keep at it without apology or deviation. This of course is not an easy thing.
