Attacking Education

In a letter to the editor of the Daily Dartmouth, James Redfield ’06 accuses TDR Executive Editor Scott Glabe ’06 of taking a principled stand in favor of a well-rounded education. After rambling about how much muddle-headed academics and liberals have in common, Redfield concludes his attack on learning by insisting that Dartmouth should not teach “a highly subjective Western canon” but some more “objective” curriculum like “searching for ideas.” Whatever.
