[OP-ED]: Growing disgust with the ethos of college campuses does not mean a rejection of higher education

According to the National Student Clearinghouse, which tracks college enrollments, the number of students in colleges and universities has now dropped for five straight years, and this year 81,000 fewer high school graduates nationwide are heading to higher-education institutions.

Una encuesta reciente sobre la perspectiva pública acerca de las instituciones nacionales provocó titulares que sugieren una historia de retraso e ignorancia. Un ejemplo: “La mayoría de los republicanos piensa que la educación superior es mala para Estados Unidos”.

La realidad es más compleja.

According to an analysis of post-election survey data conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute and The Atlantic, financially troubled voters in the white working class were more likely to prefer Hillary Clinton over Trump.

Though it’s generally a happy home, there is a stark cultural divide in my house: My husband, who was raised in a tiny, Southern rural town that was almost 100 percent white, loves “The Andy Griffith Show.”
