"People are desperate to measure something, so they seize on the wrong things," Mark Edmundson, a professor of English at the University of Virginia (PayScale, 76), told me this week.
"I'm not against people making a living or prospering. But if the objective of an education is to 'know yourself,' it's going to be hard to measure that." Professor Edmundson is author of the recent book "Why Teach? In Defense of a Real Education," which argues that education should transform students by challenging and expanding their conceptions of themselves. "Self-realization doesn't just mean sitting around discussing Plato and Socrates," he said. Professor Edmundson agreed that class distinctions were a red herring, and said that even vocational programs would benefit from courses in the humanities. "Everyone by virtue of being a human being should have a right to think about who they are and what might make them successful," he said. And he challenged the idea that choosing a college or major based on a projected high salary was a sure path to security.

Mark Edmundson, a University of Virginia English professor, was provoked to write an op-ed in the New York Times defending in-person classrooms.
He argued that a great teacher must be able to judge where students are at intellectually in order to help them learn. "Every memorable class is a bit like a jazz composition," he writes.

Mark Edmundson, professor at the University of Virginia and frequent commentator on issues of learning in higher education, delivers a scathing attack on online education - but seems to only be describing MOOCs.
