    “Whatever you learned in college is out of date”
    English, math, history, philosophy, biology, and other basic knowledge is never out of date. Like so many, you carelessly confuse job training with education.
    Even in my high school in the Fifties, my teachers explained that society was experiencing such accelerating change, that the most useful knowledge was learning how to learn and adapt, and opined that the most useful tool for doing so is a Liberal education. High starting salaries are a poor guide to leading a satisfying and useful life.
