Rebecca Mead's New Yorker Article "Learning by Degrees" a response to a current debate about the worth of college and higher learning. Mead argues that earning a degree has some intangible benefits and should not be measured by the cost of tuition or monetary gain. I do not agree with her opposition that obtaining a degree is no longer economical. I agree with Mead that universities offer more than monetary benefits. However I do believe that the reason why most people choose to go to college is because they want a career that offers a sufficient income, so I think Mead is unrealistic to say that earning a degree should not be measure by economic benefits, it should be measured by a combination of monetary and intangible advantages.
