An "Elite" Education

A couple of recent posts from kottke.org have highlighted the dark side of an elite education, both from the perspective of the students who attend and their undervalued teachers. I thought a little bit about what to say on either of them and I didn't come up with anything insightful - the first article is just about dead on and the second is nauseating in it's all-to-commonness. Perhaps I'll have more to say on this eventually, but for now, just some links.
