Journalist Nicholas Von Hoffman shares his critical thoughts about universities and colleges. Students are told what to read for class and students are taught how to pass exams, says Von Hoffman. Testing and exams don't work, contends Von Hoffman. Students must be allowed to read more about a subject on their own as opposed to what's solely offered by the curriculum's books.
