posted: 02/19/2017 2:03 a.m. Discuss

His premise was that American culture was contemptible; that the students he encountered every day as a professor were not only ignorant but -- through years of exposure to vulgar sensations, chief among them rock music -- had been desensitized to beauty.

posted: 02/19/2017 1:58 a.m. Comments 2

Any innocent reader who ever wondered what education ought to be about now has his answer direct from Governor Asa Hutchinson, who has assured the state that education is really just a numbers game. "I take seriously objectives that we set as a state, and it's a challenge for us," the governor said as he signed into law a new formula for financing two- and four-year colleges in the state. Education should be a continuing experience, not a spending formula.
