Reviewing the posts on my LinkedIn profile, I ran across this article about global perceptions of liberal arts education. I thought this report revealing, particularly as it highlights the differences between the US and our major economic competitors around the world. In short, it seems that in reaction to the economic recession of 2007, the United States has retreated from the broad-based education typified by the liberal arts. Instead, it has tightened its focus on what I would call job centered education.
Only though education can a people appreciate, value, preserve and contribute to their own freedom and self-governance. in USAO, I find an unequaled partner in my desire to help others obtain an education and through that transform themselves and their communities into their best possible versions.
