I like the way the article says she needs to speak out because all-too-many-parents and students are waking up to the reality that a B.A. in much of what is taught at elite schools is not going to help your career. http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/education/harvard-president-faust-on-federal-college-ratings-campus-sexual-assault-and-more/2014/12/15/dc5ebc2c-7a26-11e4-84d4-7c896b90abdc_story.html
