More evidence that four years of college education has been rendered useless

Ann Althouse discusses a debate on her college campus over “hip-hop studies.”  Her reaction to a student who stated that not having hip-hop studies would offer an incomplete education because it has “permeated American culture.”:

The answer, Ms. Herron (Merron?) is precisely that pop culture permeates the world of young Americans. Why pursue even more of it in college? Learn new things. Get what you can’t get just living in the world soaking up the things you naturally love and enjoy. What is the point of going to college?

What’s the point, indeed?
