Bernard Letter to The Times in Response to "My Valuable, Cheap College Degree" Op-Ed

In a letter published in The New York Times, College of Arts and Sciences Associate Professor Cathy Bernard comments on Arthur C. Brooks' op-ed about his online education. "I suspect that some of Mr. Brooks's success when he returned to school in his late 20s may be attributed to another factor: he had spent 10 years living life, becoming a muscian and traveling abroad. These experiences probably taught him more than college courses ever could, and enabled him to return to his studies with one critical ingredient for college success: the desire to learn."
