Google’s Eric Schmidt On Critics Who Say College Isn't Worth It: “They’re Just Wrong”

“They’re Just Wrong” | TechCrunch:



“If all you care about is money, you should go to college. If all you care about is culture and creativity, you should go to college. If all you care about is having fun, you should go to college. Go to college. I can’t be any clearer.”



  1. Do you agree or disagree with Schmidt's message?
  2. The article mentions some of the downsides or negatives of going to college.  In your opinion, do you think they outweigh the positives?  Or is a college degree worthwhile for most people to pursue, regardless?
  3. Do you think that Eric Schmidt is a reliable source of information on the importance of a college education, considering who he is and what he does for a living?
