I've been missing Camille's column in Slate. I understand she is working on a book and will pick up the column in October. She has stayed true to her roots in post-WWII liberalism and not been swept up in the Progressivism which dominates media intellectual circles today, and for that admire her.
I agree 4 more years of sitting in a classroom is not the best course for many, if not most, high school graduates. There are a lot of forces at work in today's society conspiring to prolong the adolescence of young people and hinder their maturing.
