The Disadavantages of an Elite Education

This was brought to my attention by our Academic Dean. It's an amazing article written by a Yale professor about the problems of an elite education, including that it is (counter-intuitively) anti-intellectual. The article is long, but really worth taking the time to read.

Favorite quote from the article: "The 'best' are the brightest only in one narrow sense. One needs to wander away from the educational elite to begin to discover this."
