The American Scholar: The Disadvantages of an Elite Education - William Deresiewicz
[ written before the crash (summer 2008), strangely pre-lapsarian in its description of the crisis in education - mostly agree w/ the gist on education in self-congratulation at elite colleges, but not so much with the flattening of race/ethnic and gender politics - also not sure about the yearning look back at the misty age "before professionalization"... was that a time when elite schools weren't reproducing the elite? didn't think so ]
