Is the Ivy League Worth It?

Feb 9, 2015

Does the Ivy League teach the best and the brightest American students or merely cater to the elite and entitled? Former Yale professor William Deresiewicz says the Ivies perpetuate an unfair class system and do not teach students to be thoughtful leaders. Deresiewicz provoked a viral backlash with his New Republic essay, "Don't Send Your Kids to the Ivy League." He's our guest, along with Josh Chapman, a Yale graduate who penned a rebuttal to Deresiewicz's piece. Original air date 10/1/14
