Liberal arts pays
I find it interesting that after going on Bill Bennett’s national radio broadcast and denouncing the value of a liberal arts education that Gov. Pat McCrory would give a 24-year-old English major and a 24-year-old economics major state jobs worth $87,500 and $85,000, respectively.
It would seem that it’s not the degree one graduates with that matters, but rather who one knows once he graduates.
I suppose that Matthew McKillip can use his mastery of English and the communication skills he acquired in his 11 months with the American Enterprise Institute to sell the notion to first- and second-year public school teachers in North Carolina that he is worth three times what they are.
