Making College ‘Relevant’

Original Article

Summary goes here!
Now this is fresh. I had read so many articles that insists on the academic vs. career education. For most part, those articles stress the importance of liberal arts education without been able to quantify the benefit of it. It's not that the liberal art is not important, the problem I have is the passive response from experts in those fields to the question: How can you quantify the benefits of liberal arts? If you can't, how should others, say the employer, trust your work, aka, the students.

For career education, there are usually specific tasks or skill that can be measured and this translated to the verification of skills and, hence, the employment.
